Mold closed down yet another firehouse. And with it being a huge risk to human health, questions are floating whether the officials responded quick enough to protect the firemen.
Station 48 on Treasure Island in San Francisco was particularly the firehouse that was reportedly shut down due to the presence of the spores. Temporarily, its agents and equipments were moved to a nearby fire academy. And as the temporary location is just a few blocks away from the facility, no effect is expected on the response time of the firefighters.
Caused by rainwater, the mold presence was confirmed last week after building investigators released their report. It particularly affected the station’s downstairs rooms and required an abatement to determine the severity of the problem – the reason why the staff had to move out.
Some firefighters though said that they had already complained about leaks in the building and being sick in it years ago. But the officials responded that they never got such complaints. If they did, they would have solved it sooner, said San Francisco Fire Assistant Deputy Chief Ken Lombardi.

“There was an odd scene on Treasure Island as firefighters were forced to evacuate their own firehouse.
The culprit in this case isn’t fire — it’s mold. It’s the same nasty black mold that ruins buildings and makes people sick. Firefighters there had complained they found some of it and when the city sent over investigators, they told them it wasn’t safe for anyone to be here. Now there are questions about whether the city acted quickly enough.”
