LONG BRANCH: The future of one of the city's firehouses is currently up in the air.
Long Branch Business Administrator Howard Woolley said the West End Firehouse, located on the corner of Second Avenue and Montgomery Avenue, has been closed for the last 6-7 months after problems were discovered in the building.
"There's a problem with the roof and asbestos," Woolley said. "It's an old building that needs a lot of work."
He said the vehicles that were once housed there are currently stationed at fire headquarters on Union Avenue.
The city does not own the building, but has been leasing it for years, Woolley said.
No decision on whether the building will be renovated or not has been made as of last week.
