Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Captain Daniel Volpe points out deterioration and mold growing on the walls of the Central Fire Station on Friday in Hilo.

The Hawaii Fire Department will move operations this summer from its Central Fire Station in downtown Hilo to a midtown building on Kilauea Avenue so the 90-year-old station can undergo long-overdue repairs.
