Harlem-Roscoe firefighters investigate smoke at their old Firehouse

On the morning of Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021, Harlem-Roscoe firefighters responded to a smoke report at a familiar location - 10670 Main Street in Roscoe - the former Harlem-Roscoe fire station, now the Firehouse Pub

After Fire Station No. 1 moved to its present location in 1994, the Prosser family purchased the old location and opened the Firehouse Pub. In fact, Michael Prosser spent time as a firefighter with the Harlem-Roscoe Fire District.

Firefighters checked the inside of the building and the roof top, and believe the smoke may have come from a rooftop HVAC unit (not the kitchen).
