Lubbock Will Spend $1 Million to Rebuild Old Fire Station

The city of Lubbock will spend one million dollars to replace a 40 year-old fire station in central Lubbock.

On Thursday, the city council granted the fire department's wish to demolish and rebuild fire station eight on 50th Street and Avenue U.

Fire Chief Steve Hailey says it is the only station in Lubbock that is out-dated. He says the building is too small for operation. "With our public safety improvement plan we started in 1995, we replaced six fire stations under that plan and now we're doing number eight," said Chief Hailey.

"Hailey expects the construction to start at the end of this month. The new station will be ready in eight months.
