New Firehouse Stands Vacant
A new fire house in Charleston, W. Va., faces the prospect of being unoccupied for several months because there are neither men nor equipment for it. This recently built fire station is one of the four that were completed on a PWA and municipal bond issue.
It was pointed out that Charleston is growing, and that by the time a fire company is needed, the money will be available for men and equipment. City officials claim there is no harm in being a little overbuilt at the present, because one cannot say when a similar chance would present itself in the future.
