Prior to the completion of the 'new' Central Fire Station in 1926, the Central  Fire Brigade had moved from Queen's Road Central (probably from the co-located No. 5 Police Station and old Central Fire Station) to a temporary fire station on Des Voeux Road Central on 14 December 1922 accommodating 4 appliances, 2 motor cars, 2 Officers and 64 men.

The temporary fire station was located in a building recently erected on the site of the old Victoria Theatre at the corner of Des Voeux Road Central and Pottinger Street and very close to the 'new' Central Fire Station Building
