The Reading (PA) Fire Department recently broke ground on a new $9 million station, reports Yahoo.

The new facility—to be built on the northeast corner of Ninth and Marion streets—will be more than three times the size of its predecessor, which was built in 1887 and lacks space, safety features, and many modern amenities, the report says.

The old station will be demolished and rebuilt into a playground. Plans for the new station were previously shelved multiple times over location disputes.
