Look inside Seattle Fire Department's renovated Station 5
Seattle Fire Station 5 Reopens

After a closure of more than three years, the Seattle Fire Department invited the public inside the newly renovated Fire Station 5 on Seattle's historic waterfront. Sitting just north of the ferry terminal, the site has been home to a fire station since 1902. The current station was built in 1963. During the renovation, Station 5 was seismically upgraded,  its interior modernized and its mechanical systems updated. Its closure coincided with construction of the new seawall. One of the department's most popular stations, Station 5 houses a fire engine and three fireboats: the 108-foot Leschi; the 50-foot fast-attack boat, Marine One; and a 25-foot rescue boat.
