New temporary firehouse opens in Skyline Hills

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The area of Skyline Hills has received additional fire protection.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Thursday to open Fire Station 51, which is a temporary fire house.
   
One fire engine and four firefighters will man the station until a more permanent facility can be built. The opening of "Fire Station 51" is expected to speed up response times.
  
A 2011 City-Gate report identified Skyline Hills as one of the areas identified among several lower-income neighborhoods that saw delayed emergency responses.

Meanwhile, several other new fire stations are also planned around the city.
