Department to rehab 1930s fire house

The roof and electrical wiring in the former Community Volunteer Fire Company on South Meade Road in Linthicum -- one of the oldest fire houses in the county -- is to be refurbished by the county Fire Department.

Capt. Gary Sheckells, a department spokesman, said the department plans to spend $500,000 repairing the facility it took over from the volunteers in the late 1980s. The department also wants to repoint the brickwork, install a new heating system, upgrade the plumbing and remove potentially leaking underground fuel storage tanks.

"It's a well-placed station and we plan to be there for years to come," Captain Sheckells said of the building, which was built in the 1930s.


* Linthicum: Someone broke into K&K Tires in the 800 block of Oregon Ave. Monday morning and stole 100 used tire rims, worth $4,000. A hole was cut in the security fence.
