Detroit - Engine 48's former quarters at S. Bayside and Sanders was damaged by fire on Saturday November 29, when the dwelling next door burned down. Engines 48,33,29,27, Ladder 13,8, Squad 4 and Chief 7 responded to the fire.
This firehouse dates back to 1918 at the intersection of Bagley and 6th Street in the heart of Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood. The company relocated to the former quarters of Ladder 12 on West Lafayette when that company was disbanded in 1982.
The firehouse was last occupied as a law office with the interior extensively remodeled.
