Pa. fire station closed by mold

York is left with three stations in service and potentially slower response times until the situation is resolved

YORK, Pa. — The floods have receded and the ground hasn't shaken for weeks, but natural disasters continue to wreak havoc on the York City Fire Department. Mold has been discovered growing in one city fire station, while a recent earthquake is thought to have compromised the structural integrity of another station.

Fire Chief Steven Buffington decided late Monday to temporarily close the Lincoln station on Roosevelt Avenue after mold was found in at least two rooms — leaving the city with three stations in service and potentially slower response times until the situation is resolved.
