HUMBERSIDE Fire and Rescue Service have submitted plans to give its retained station at Epworth an extension and facelift.
The Tottermire Road site was itself damaged by a blaze in June and it was unknown at the time if it was an arson attack or was caused by an electrical fault on the £160,000 fire engine.
HFRS now proposes to make the premises bigger to house a larger fire engine, and rebuild the damaged area.
Also planned is the installation of a larger roller shutter door to make it easier for fire engines to drive out when there is an emergency.
Two residents of a neighbouring property have objected to North Lincolnshire Council about the plans claiming the extension will lead to a loss of light into their property.
A decision on the matter is expected early in 2012.
