Since then the eleven member crew, male and female, has worked out of a cinder block training center and are sleeping in a classroom, according to ktvu.com. While nerves are sometimes raw and morale has slipped, until a permanent fire station can be constructed in 2018, a temporary firehouse of modular buildings will be completed by next March. As MHProNews reported June 22, 2011, the Spokane (Wash.) Fire Department is using a multisection manufactured home as a firehouse, with an oversize garage to house the equipment. ##

DesertDispatch reports from Barstow, Calif. in San Bernardino County a factory-built home sold to a family at the Hacienda Mobile Home Park was alleged to have black mold, running sewage, an open electrical panel and a leaking water heater. Deemed uninhabitable by the Dept. of Housing and Community Development, Hacienda was cited for selling a substandard housing unit and has 30 days to repair the damaged home before trying to sell it again. MHProNews has been informed the Dept. of Housing noted 16 violations, including holes in the floor in two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a hallway and water heater compartment. The community manager claims the family inflicted the damage to get out of the contract.
