Fight over fire hall heats up in Edmonton

[ Back ]

Snippet:

EDMONTON, AB - People who live in an Edmonton river valley neighbourhood are worried about the expansion of a fire hall.

The Rossdale fire hall, behind Telus Field, was mothballed in the 1990s and is now used only for river rescues.

Edmonton Fire Rescue is hoping to recommission it as a full service fire station to improve response times to downtown.
