Fire-fighters showed their appreciation to a Queen Adelaide packaging firm last week for giving the city's fire engines a home during a three-week refurbishment of Ely Fire Station.
Station commander Ady Slack presented David Atchinson, operations manager of DS Smith Packaging, with a plaque to say 'thank you' to the Ely Road firm for allowing fire-fighters to operate from its warehouse during evening shifts.
Mr Atchinson said: "We didn't really know they were here because it was so well organised."
Mr Slack said that DS Smith's help was invaluable to the community while the refurbishment was carried out.
