Old Stewartville Fire Hall demolished

Posted:

STEWARTVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) -- Main street in Stewartville is looking a little different these days.

As of noon Tuesday, more than half of the Stewartville Fire station was gone as demolition continues to make way for a new one.

Until then, the fire trucks the station uses are scattered all around the town. Business such us a Weiser Precast and others with garages are volunteering their space until the new fire hall is completed.

If a fire call comes in, fighfighters will meet at Weiser Precast and respond to the emergency from there.

"We had our first meeting last night at the Civic Center, and of course it was different than what we are used to, but for the most part we're looking at six months timeframe, which is, in the big picture, very short term," Stewartville Fire Chief Steve Wolf said Tuesday.

All of the trucks and firefighters plan to be back in their new home once it is completed in about six months.
