The 15,338-square foot, two-story station will help the fire department improve response times.

Fire station 24 is the first new station built since 2006 when Fire Station 22 was built in Veterans Park. But it’s been in the works for nearly a decade as the city’s growth demanded an additional fire station on the northwest side of Lexington.
