BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Work is moving along on clearing mold from Boardman’s main fire station.
Township Administrator Jason Loree said mold was found last week in the basement and first floor of the station on Boardman Poland Road. It will cost about $19,000 to rid the building of the substance.
As for the cause, Loree said the station was built in the 1920s and does not have a sump pump. Also, some of the humidifiers were not working, leading to the mold growth.
Cleanup should be complete by Friday.
This is not the first time mold has been found at the Boardman Poland Road station. A similar problem was discovered in 2006.
The station includes living quarters for firefighters as well as offices for the chief and assistant chief.
