(KTVI)-- The You Paid For It team investigates the troubles with facilities and equipment in the troubled Monarch Fire Protection District in West County.
According to internal reports obtained by Fox 2, the district needs hundreds of thousands of dollars in repairs to facilities and million for equipment. Investigator Elliott Davis went to engine houses in the district to see problems with the roof, with electrical wiring, issues with foxing a mold problem, and a broken down rescue boat.
The former fire chief tells Elliott Davis the district has had to borrow fire trucks when their own truck and back-up broke down.
But District Board President Robin Harris says this board is doing a good job keeping tab on things. The board has been locked in a bitter battle with its own firefighters over spending priorities and personnel issues.
