Could you tell me what happened with the fire station at Clinton Parkway and Lawrence Avenue? It looks like it has been abandoned. There are no fire trucks and there is a big tree in the driveway.
That was Station No. 4, and it closed in 2006 when the new station opened on Wakarusa Drive. The Lawrence City Commission must decide what to do with the old station: sell it or use it for something else. Until then, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical is still responsible for maintaining the building and the grounds, Chief Mark Bradford said. As for the tree, Bradford didn't know anything about that. It is no longer there.
