Duncan Fire Station Closed due to Mold Problem

Duncan fire station number 3, located at 1701 Elder in Duncan, Oklahoma, was recently closed after mold was discovered in the living quarters and office space.

The report said once we treated and all the surface mold was gone we had to rip out all the wood stuff and get behind the wood and have it re-treated again…It is up to the city manger and council if it is feasible to remove all the areas that have mold, repair and rebuild or to re-locate.”
