Carlsbad will soon get to work on a new fire station for the city by demolishing an existing fire station, reports NBC San Diego.
Built in 1969, Fire Station No. 2 is not suited for modern firefighting: the building was meant to house one firefighters, wooden shingles on the roof and sides pose a fire hazard and the engine bays are too short.
Funding for the $13 million project was approved by voters. The new station will be more than double its current size and will have large bays.
