The Burnt Ridge (AR) Volunteer Fire Department now has three stations in its district, following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Holley Mountain Airpark on Monday, November 8.
The facility will house a fire engine, a brush truck, and a service truck, according to thecabin.net.
Officials say the new facility will allow quicker response to the Highway 110 and Shirley Fire Districts, as well as lower the ISO rating for area homes.
The Holley Mountain Air Park Fire Department was closed in 2019, consolidating into Burnt Ridge due to difficulties in maintaining its volunteer base, according to the report.
The Holley Mountain Property Owners Association raised funds to build the 50-by-40-foot station there, which it leases to Burnt Ridge Fire for $1 per year.
