On Friday, the Lubbock fire department celebrated the opening of its newest station. Station-6 is located at 35th and Indiana. The station was torn down last year and rebuilt from the ground up after it was discovered that newer, larger fire engines were too big to fit in the old building.
Lubbock Mayor Marc McDougal expressed the city's gratitude to the department. "We really do appreciate what you guys do every single day protecting life and property in Lubbock's Texas."
The previous Station-6 was built in 1953.
