Fire breaks out at Pasadena fire station

Firefighters were called to their own fire station overnight when something inside caught fire. It happened around 1am Pasadena fire station number 6 on Kirby near Old Kirby.

There are three rooms that were damaged in the fire. The room where the fire began is one of the old so-called attendant rooms. Those rooms haven't really been used for the last 10 years. So no one was inside those rooms at the time of the blaze.

"We are a volunteer firefighter department so no one was staffed at the station. There was no one here. Our district chief lives pretty close by and got here pretty quick," said Chief Lanny Armstrong Pasadena Fire Department. "They managed to get all of the trucks out of the fire station."

Firefighters actually used one of their own fire trucks to help put out the flames. None of the equipment was damaged in the fire.

There is a police substation next to this fire station. There was one officer inside at the time of the fire. That officer was able to get out safely.

Arson investigators are trying to determine the cause of this blaze.
