10/21/06 120 W, 1 I - + 15 - 9 Old Station 6

Here's another picture of old Station 6 on Fairview Road, recently correctly identified. The fire station occupied the left half of the building. Period pictures appear to indicate that that section of the building had both a picture window and a bay door. Notice the driveway slope still remains. Station 6 opened at 12:00 p.m. on March 3, 1943. Engine 6 was placed in service with a 1919 American LaFrance pumper. Six men manned the station. By the summer of 1948, the station was closed when the city lost the lease on the building. Engine 6 was temporarily relocated to Station 5. On June 25, 1949 at 3:30 p.m., a dedicated Station 6 opened at its present location. More information about former firehouses in Raleigh.
