New Fire Station Opens in Leaburg

LEABURG, Ore. — McKenzie Fire and Rescue held its ribbon cutting ceremony for its new fire station in Leaburg Wednesday morning.

McKenzie Fire and Rescue says the construction process only took about a year.

The new station is in the center of their district and will have amenities, like a gym and workout facility for the fire fighters, as well as new offices. Leaburg community members say the fire fighters deserve the new facility because they work so hard.

“We’ve had a couple of emergencies at our house and, you know, they’re there immediately and they’re there and doing whatever needs to be done, comforting the rest of us while they’re doing their job and they do a great job,” said Leaburg resident Marty Mealey.

Construction cost about $1.8 million, which is under budget by $100,000.
