Lebanon Fire Department falling apart

LEBANON (WGME) – The Lebanon Fire Department is literally falling apart, and now, the fire chief wants something done about it.

He says some parts of the station have actually been condemned.

There's a huge hole in the floor, and he says the building is actually caving in on itself.

They also don't have facilities for firefighters to clean their gear.

The chief also says there are no showers for firefighters to clean up after fighting a fire.

He says they're bringing possible carcinogens home, also exposing their families.

Firefighters say the building is not actually owned by the town, so they can't put money towards repairs.

That's why they're hoping the town will invest in a whole new station.
