Fire Station #7 was opened this day in history 83 years ago. The station originally had only 1 bay. The second bay was added on in 1950 to accommodate a Ladder truck. The addition was built The station is still in operation today housing Engine 7 and Ladder 7. I was told just the other day that Roanoke Fire-EMS has begun planning to replace this station with a new Fire Station 7 in the same vicinity. The new station will probably have 3 bays and will be built in the next 10 years.
