History of Fire Station 61

 

Firehouse #61 was built just south of Hobby Airport to supplement Station #36 when there was a fire at Hobby Airport. It was located at the corner of Monroe and Swiss Streets in 1968. In April of 2003 while the men were cooking fish for their evening meal, an alarm was sounded. It was thought that the stove had been turned off, but it was not. Within 45 minutes a station alarm was broadcast at their station. Hurriedly they picked up from the first fire and responded to their station to find heavy black smoke showing. Loss: one kitchen, one lounge, one captain's room and a smoke ring throughout the station.
