Fire department to hold ground-breaking

The Pine Bluff Fire & Emergency Services Department will host a ground-breaking ceremony at 11:30 a.m. Nov. 14 at 32nd Avenue and Beech Street for the new fire station #3.

The passage of the 5/8 cent tax in 2011 included a provision for buying land and constructing a new fire station.

The structure will be a three bay station to serve south and southeast Pine Bluff. The station will replace the current facility at 30th Avenue and Ash Street that was built in 1956.
