Following a 32-year wait, San Pablo (CA) is getting a new fire station.

According to a report on, Fire Station 70 will be put into service by the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District at a ceremony tomorrow, April 13, at the station site.

The report noted that the station will be dedicated to the two district firefighters—Matt Burton and Scott Desmond—who were killed attempting to rescue a couple trapped in their burning San Pablo home 14 years ago.

The district broke ground in April 2019 for the $13.5 million, 15,000-square-foot station on a vacant lot 3 miles from the site of the tragic house fire.
