The Chehalis Fire Department is still operating out of Lewis County Fire District 6 headquarters and there are no immediate plans for it to move back to downtown Chehalis more than four months after evacuating the 455 NW Park St. building due to asbestos contamination. Renovation work has continued there since cleanup efforts related to the asbestos wrapped up in September. The city council approved an interlocal agreement between the city and Fire District 6 in mid-September that allowed the Chehalis Fire Department to continue using the county facility at 2123 Jackson Hwy until Nov. 1 at a rate of $1,400 per month. Chehalis Fire Chief Ken Cardinale made recommendations last month to city manager Jill Anderson regarding the future of the historic fire station. Anderson is expected to provide a report updating the situation at a city council meeting in the near future, but details remain vague.
