Grand opening for new fire station in Bonsall

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A grand opening celebration was held for North County's newest fire station.

Bonsall Fire Station 5 is located on the corner of Olive Hill Road and Highway 76.

The 8,000-square-foot building is equipped with an emergency generator, a fuel tank, and meets modern standards for earthquake compliance and other requirements.

Chief Bill Metcalf says the new station significantly increases the district's ability to protect the community.

"The old station had room for really only one fire engine parked inside, and this allows us to park both a structure fire engine and a brush engine here and also eventually house an ambulance here," Metcalf said.

This is the first new fire station the district has been able to build in nearly 50 years.
