Service Area and Closest Facility report different times

I can't seem to get the Service Area model and the Closest Facility model to agree with each other.  I ran the Service Area model for 5-minute drive times from fire station.  Presumably all the street segments generated are within a 5-minute drive time from their respective stations.  When I run the Closest Facility model on Incidents that are near the edge of the drive time areas, the resulting routes report 6-7 minutes or more in the Total_Time field.  Not only that but they often do not find the correct station.

I'm using the same network model for both and have turned off all the restrictions in the Closest Facility model except for one-way streets, which is the only restriction in the Service Area model. 

Any other settings I might be missing?

thanks
