CONTRA COSTA COUNTY -- The Contra Costa Fire District will hold community meetings in four cities where fire stations will close on Jan. 15.
The board of supervisors voted in December to shutter four of its 28 stations after financial shortfalls drained the district's budget reserves and voters rejected a temporary parcel tax on the November ballot.

The meetings will be held on:
