NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Construction will begin on a new fire station in Norfolk on Monday.
The old Fire Station 12, which sits near the intersection of Hampton Boulevard and West Little Creek Road, is the oldest fire station in the city, having been built in 1924.
Our partners at The Virginian-Pilot report the new station will be across the street from its original location, and it'll cost about $5.1 million. This includes a new fire engine and medic unit, and the station will house what's known as a Maritime Incident Response Team.
City spokeswoman Lori Crouch tells The Virginian-Pilot there are no immediate plans for the old fire station, but the city will keep the building for now.
