One of Parkersburg's six fire stations Is expected to be demolished later this month. Equipment and staff from station #2, at 16th and Covert Streets, already have been transferred to the main fire station, station #1, at the Parkersburg City Building. The demolition is in preparation for construction of a new station #2 at the current location-one of three stations set for eventual replacement. "We got the ball rolling on this one," says Fire Chief Jason Matthews, "and we're going to continue to work on the other two. We're looking at floor plans, working with the engineer. They'll have to do some site work, some surveying. So that's still moving forward."
