The remaining days of the historic Kabekona fire tower seem numbered.

Perched high above a ridge off Highway 200, it is scheduled to be demolished in the future to make way for a high tech radio tower.


And that pending demolition is making some local residents nostalgic. The tower sits atop one of the highest ridges in Hubbard County.
