The Cleveland ambulance building was extensively damaged and three newly purchased ambulance vehicles destroyed. The total cost of replacing the building will be $4.3 million.

The station was relocated to nearby Enterprise Street in Cleveland, where it will remain until the new building is complete.

After the fire, Cleveland MP Mark Robinson vowed to ensure the station would be rebuilt as soon as possible.

This week he said reconstruction works were on track. The contract for the work was awarded to Nairn Constructions and completion is due in June 2014.

A 23-year-old Wellington Point woman was charged with entering with intent, two counts of arson, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possession of house-breaking tools after the fire ripped through the five-vehicle station in the early hours of Wednesday, October 27, 2010.

The matter was listed for mention in Brisbane District Court on Friday and was listed again for mention on November 11.
