Canton Township's decades-long growth spurt has created a need for a fourth fire station, Director of Fire Services Christopher Stoecklein told the township's board of trustees during an April 20 study session.
Just weeks after the unveiling of the township's newly-renovated Fire Station No.
A Novi woman and her two small dogs died in an early Monday morning condo fire along East Glen Haven Circle.
Fire Chief Jeff Johnson said firefighters went to the Country Place Condominiums northwest of Meadowbrook and Eight Mile roads after a 911 call was made at 2:06 a.m. on April 5.
They saw smoke and flames through the front window.
Canton Township officials gathered at the new Fire Station No. 2 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, March 11, 2021.

Canton Township’s new Warren Road fire station has quick-moving doors that are a favorite feature of Chief Christopher Stoecklein’s because of their local maker: International Door.
Some Kendallwood Drive residents were sleeping when they smelled smoke in their Farmington Hills home early Saturday morning, according to fire officials.
They were able to call 911 and escape the one-story home by jumping out of a bedroom window and not sustaining any injuries.
An ongoing electrical issue apparently sparked a Monday morning fire that damaged six SMART buses stationed outside Nankin Transit in Westland.
Westland officials reported on Facebook that the fire department received several reports that multiple buses were on fire in the 32150 Dorsey St. parking area.
