On January 1, 1923 the company was relocated to 1331 19th St. at Market, a co-location with the DFD repair shop (Denver Fire Line Shop) and used to repair communication equipment in the fire units. This firehouse remained in service until 1971 when Engine Company 5 moved to Station 3 and became Engine Company 3.

After being disbanded for 9 years Station 5 reorganized on October 15, 1979 at 10815 W. Alamo Pl. in a newly annexed portion of Denver. This area was previously covered by the Bancroft Fire Protection District and on January 1, 1981 the City of Denver de-annexed due to the Poundstone Amendment, and at that time Station 5 was once again disbanded.
