As of today, the city of Ishpeming Fire Department has temporarily moved to a new location. The department has moved into the city’s old recycling center building on Carson Road off of Lakeshore Drive.
The Partridge Creek construction project near the fire hall on Lake Street, along with plans to reinforce the 100-year-old floor of the fire hall in the coming months have made the move necessary. Motorists should be watchful of emergency vehicles exiting onto Lakeshore Drive. It is unclear as to when the department will move back into the fire hall on Lake Street.
