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.

According to Duncan Fire Chief Dayton Burnside, “Once the city discovered the mold, they had it tested and got the report back…then paid an environmental specialist out of Lawton to come … and chemically treat the mold that was visible and throughout the station. 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.”

The fire crews have been temporary relocated to the downtown fire station, however, officials plan to place a temporary building outside the fire station by Monday.
