Another Tuesday, another day in Concord to find another historic building. Just as I was about to walk away, a siren sounded and out came the Fire-Rescue Unit, check out the last photo.
This County Fire House was built during 1938–1939 at its existing location (2210 Willow Pass Road), which was on land in the original village of Todos Santos. Fire Commissioner DeRosa arranged for the Fire District to purchase these two lots for $5,000. The construction cost was $2,800. The white adobe structure had two large halls for its trucks and included nine smaller rooms, two kitchens, and several sleeping and ready rooms. Currently it remains in use as an emergency and fire alert station for No. 6 Engine Company. The Contra Costa County Consolidated Fire District is the current owner.
