Long Description:
The fire hall stands immediately south of Oroville's town hall, on the corner of Ironwood Street and Apple Way Avenue. With a rounded corner and glass block window it could well have been built in the middle of the twentieth century or earlier. A couple of cream coloured features on the east face of the building are also suggestive of Art Deco. Atop the older section of the building is a tower with two fire sirens, one atop and one within.

On their Facebook Page the department has posted a photo of an extremely cool old tractor-trailer style fire engine, a type we've never seen before.

Near the southeast corner of the building is a firefighters' monument, a poem written in memory of those who have served this department.

Oroville Volunteer Fire Department

Bravest hearts of purest courage
In the fear and in the flames
Noble heroes to be honored
In our memories carve their names
Who could run into such danger
When life's sweet and love is true
Who could die to save a stranger
Who could live as heroes do?
Author, Maria Vassallo
