A fire station in Garden City was closed for about two weeks because of mold issues.

The Azalea Avenue station, in Garden City, is the one that had mold problems, and the crews that normally work out of there were "temporarily relocated to our Headquarters station which is approximately 2.5 miles away," the fire district said.

Mold was reported on Wednesday, Jan. 10, and the crews were "immediately removed from that building to insure the health of our finest."

Work was done to test the building, correct the issues and call in specialists.

As of yesterday, Jan. 30, the crew is heading back into the station.

We would like to thank all of the community for your patience while our station was being cleaned and repaired so that our firefighters have a suitable environment to work in. Your continued love and support is a large part of what drives us every day to strive towards excellence. We would also like to thank Air Quality Analytical, Inc., A & I Fire and Water Restoration, and Hays Heating and Air for the quick and thorough work to ensure the best conditions are provided for our firefighters.
