Des Moines fire station closes for repairs

DES MOINES, Iowa - A busy fire station in Des Moines will be closed down for needed improvements to the building.

The department says fire station 3 will be closed for over a month.

"We are hoping for thirty or forty days. The contractor has been given forty-five days so we are hoping by the end of July that things will be back up to normal here at station three," said Lieutenant Chris Clement.

The price tag for the renovations should cost around $66,000.

"The structure is getting older so there`s been some water damage and other concerns like electrical and otherwise but the primary concern is the stairs," said Clement.

WHO Channel 13 reports the Des Moines Fire Department has 10 stations in the city with the 11th station set to open at Hubbell and 42nd Street in 2021.
