VIDEO: Members of Mount Pleasant Fire Station #5 are staying in unique temporary living quarters while the station undergoes renovations. Over the last month, fire crews have been living out of a villa at Somerby Senior Living in Mount Pleasant. Christie Gauldin, the Director of Sales and Marketing, says she was a little surprised when Mount Pleasant Fire asked if their crews could stay there while their station underwent renovations, but she knew it was something they had to make work. “I’ve been in senior living for about 14 years and this is definitely a first,” Gauldin said. Captain Matt Tidwell with Mount Pleasant Fire says they wanted to stay close to the district five area to be able to still serve this community, especially since there aren’t any other stations nearby.
