New Farmingdale (ME) Fire Station Nears Completion

A new $1.3 million fire station is nearing completion ahead of an open house likely to be held next month, reports CentralMaine.com.

The department’s old station was crammed into a couple of rooms connected to the Farmingdale Town Office.

Because of its size, the town had to special order smaller trucks, which had to be moved one at a time and carefully driven out of the garage onto busy Maine Avenue. The new three-bay, 80-foot-by-80-foot station dwarfs the cramped space at the old station.
