City of Mountainburg to build new fire station


MOUNTAINBURG, Ark. (KNWA) The city of Mountainburg hopes to create more space for its first responders after outgrowing its fire station.

Mayor Susan Wilson said the city has hired architects to design a new fire station at the end of town.

Right now, the Mountainburg fire station is attached to the city hall building in a space that is not adequate for their firefighters.

Mayor Wilson said, They literally have a two-bay garage and that’s it. They don’t have a classroom, they don’t have a kitchen, they don’t have anything to hold meetings. They depend on city hall.

Mayor Wilson says the city hopes to break ground by June 1, 2019.
