A local fire station is reopened after a sewage backup forced it to temporarily shut down.
Grand Junction fire officials say while firefighters at Station 4 on Orchard Mesa responded to calls, sewage flowed into the building soaking the area where the firefighters stay during the night.
Crews were moved to Station 1 downtown while the problem was fixed and the building cleaned up.
Fire officials say they haven’t had many issues with the station, which was built in 1979 and they say they have more pressing needs than making improvements to it.
Officials say their top priorities are remodeling Station 1 and building two new stations in areas that have seen massive growth.
They say, however, they always look for opportunities to improve facilities, which in turn, improves their service.
