Fire Service Say Tango Company Fire Station in Fortuna Is Closed Now

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Director nominee of the Virgin Islands Fire Service Daryl George said Sunday that the Tango Company Fire Station in Estate Fortuna on St. Thomas is temporarily closed.

George said the closure was needed after a burnout to the building’s power meter caused the station to lose power shortly before 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Fire Service personnel assigned to the Tango Company Fire Station have all been reassigned temporarily to the Emile C. Berry Fire Station in Estate Dorothea.

The Virgin Islands Fire Service said it “apologizes to the residents of Estates Bordeaux and Fortuna.”

The Tango Company Fire Station is expected to reopen on Wednesday.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
