SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - One of the Shreveport Fire Department’s stations has reopened with limited capabilities after closing temporarily Wednesday, July 14.

The department announced on Facebook Wednesday evening that it had reopened the station, but with limited capabilities. Crews have been placed into a rapid response vehicle that can respond to EMS calls and provide some manpower on fire calls, department officials say.

Department officials say the initial closure of Station 2 (4575 N. Market St.) was because there was no reserve fire apparatus available.

  • 2027 David Raines Road
  • 263 N. Common St.
  • 2200 Milam St.
