A fire Friday morning in Scranton's East Mountain prompted the changes. It took crews ten
minutes to respond to scene, since the fire station was closed.
Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty, Scranton City Council and the Fire Fighters Union agreed this
afternoon to rehire 12 firefighters as of Saturday.
The East Mountain Fire Station will also be permanently re-open.
Eyewitness News Reporter Eric Deabill will have more on this story tonight on Eyewitness News.
