RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. — Riviera Beach officials held a news conference Thursday morning about air quality concerns within the city's fire stations.

WATCH NEWS CONFERENCE:

Riviera Beach Interim Fire Chief John Curd said recent air quality tests found unidentified particulates at Station 86, located at 5010 N. Ocean Drive, and Station 87, located at 600 W. Blue Heron Blvd.

The tests did not uncover any mold or mildew, Chief Curd said.

All firefighters have been relocated from Station 86 as a result.

In addition, all firefighters from Station 88, located at 1663 W. Blue Heron Blvd., have been relocated after an employee raised concerns two months ago about the possible presence of mold and mildew.

There are no test results from Station 88 at this time, Chief Curd said.

Riviera Beach was advised to deep clean all fire stations, clean the HVAC systems, and remove all carpeting.
