Sylvania's Fire Station 1 will be torn down this week.
SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Sylvania's old Fire Station 1, located on Monroe Street near the Government Center, is starting to come down.
Crews began to remove the old fire station's driveway Monday. This is the first step of the demolition process that will take place this week.
A new modern replacement will be built on the same site and while construction is taking place, firefighters at Station 1 will be housed at a temporary station off Brint Road, and at Fire Station 3 on Whiteford Road.
Sylvania residents mostly agree a new fire station will help the area.
"I think it's great that they're always updating things in our community and it makes us safer," said Connie White.
Construction on the building will begin Wednesday.
