Longview Unveils Newly Renovated Fire Station

Call it a makeover.

With the growth on the south side of Longview, city officials have updated their fire station.   Today, fire station 3 held a ceremony in celebration of their newly-renovated and expanded station on the south side of Longview. The station has doubled its capacity size and is adding more equipment. Fire officials say with Longview's growth comes a need to expand. "This district is always very busy. It has some of the highest fire rates in the city, so having a fire station in this district is extremely important for our south side,"said Kenny Southwell, Interim fire chief of the Longview fire department. The newly-renovated fire station is also planning on adding a ladder fire truck to the facility.
