Tampa Firefighters Deal with Rats, Mold at Fire Station

Firefighters at Tampa (FL) Fire Station No 10 have complained of rat droppings falling from roof tiles and a smell of urine, according to a news report.

City officials say they have not dealt with the infestation at one of the city’s oldest fire stations, The Tampa Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/1JWXTSR).

For months, firefighters reported regularly hearing rats scamper in the space between the first and second floor, the report said.

Parts of the station also had a foul smell of rat urine, and droppings would regularly fall from a loose ceiling tile when a bathroom door was opened, according to the report.

The report also said city officials claimed the station was inspected by a pest control firm last month, the fourth time since November that the firm has treated the infestation. Records show the two-story brick station, which dates from 1928, has suffered from mold in the past.
