YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - Crews from a New York firehouse are getting used to a different home after engineers told them their 88-year-old station was in danger of collapsing.

Officials were told Friday that the 1927 Yonkers firehouse has structural damage and is being condemned. The building has cracks in the facade and has water damage to its upper floors.

The station housed two companies, which have been moved to different parts of the city.

Yonkers Fire Commissioner John Darcy says the companies’ relocation shouldn’t severely delay response times.

But nearby residents say they’re concerned that their neighborhood firehouse is out of commission.

It’s unclear what the future plans are for the building.
