VIDEO: A large white tent on a lot in a north Provo neighborhood will be home base for a group of firefighters during the next 10 months. The temporary fire station will house crews during the the desperately-needed reconstruction of Provo Fire Station 2. 2News reported on the issues with Station 2 last year — including mold, flooding, and structural concerns. The city is using $70 million in bond money that was approved last fall to rebuild the city municipal center and fire Station 2. “This is kind of the first step in giving the citizens of Provo what they have committed to in terms of the bond with our new facilities. We are really excited about that,” Miguel said. “If you had seen or remember seeing the inside of fire station number 2, it’s not that much of a downgrade,” Provo City Fire Chief Jim Miguel said.
