Cache rejects second fire substation

CACHE, Okla._The city has rejected a proposal to build a fire substation to serve the pecan valley housing additions.

Cache Fire Chief Dale Winham says without it, homes in those neighborhoods face greater risk in the event of a fire. The proposal would have put a station near Deyo Mission Road and Cache Road at a cost of roughly $500,000. Winham says with just one fire station, firefighters are able respond to the housing addition in eight minutes, at best, which he says is just too long.

"So many times we end up losing homes because we just can't get there fast enough. We can't get water on the fire. My biggest fear is having someone trapped on the second floor or an invalid or a small child trapped in that home and we can't get there for 5 or 6 or 7 minutes,” Winham said.

Winham says now it's up to Pecan Valley residents to decide if they want to start their own volunteer fire department.
