"Paid Fire Department opened in March, 1889, under Chief W. H. Holmes, with two horses and a hose wagon. In 1901 Chief Holmes was succeeded by J. T. Atkinson who remained in office one year during which time the truck was added to the department Station No. 1. On July 2, 1903, our present chief, T. W. Howe, was favored with the office.In 1906 the chief's gig was added to the department, and then on August 15, 1907, Station No. 2 was opened with three horses and a hose wagon. Today Pittsburg has one of the fastest and best equipped fire departments of any city of its size. The city is contemplating adding two motor engines to the department in the near future. Their present officers are: Chief, T. W. Howe, Assistant Chief, F. O. Robertson; Secretary, Ira Main; Captain of Station No. 2, S. J. Urichs." - Prosperous Pittsburg Pictorially Portrayed, publishers: Pittsburg Publicity Company, 1915
