MFD's Fire Station #6 has been in it's current location for 60 years and will close in April.

According to NewsWest 9, the new Fire Station #6 will be located on Tradewinds Blvd. close to the Scharbauer Sports Complex.

Fire officals say the current location on Thomason and Midland Drive is no longer useful because of the growth of Midland in the past few years.

The old location was built in the mid 50's and was perfect for the community at that time but as the community has grown, it outgrew the current location.

Building began last year on the new and improved and bigger Fire Station #6 which will open next month.

A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for mid to late April.
