Virginia Beach, Va. – “Even Fire Stations are not immune from fire,” says Battalion Chief Tim Riley.

On Friday, January 25, 2013, Fire Station 21, located on Nimmo Parkway in Virginia Beach, had a heater malfunction in the ceiling, which caused a fire in the weight room.

Battalion Chief Riley says the fire station remained open, and reported that the exercise area had “more of a foul odor than normal”.
