VIDEO: A brand new fire station is coming to one north Phoenix neighborhood. It's been years in the making, but it won't look like any firehouse you've ever seen before. At least not yet. "Fire Station 55" will operate out of a hotel room at the Marriott Residence Inn near 19th Avenue and Happy Valley Road. Its new engine was just given its official number Wednesday afternoon. “It's unique, but I’m excited that we have something up here,” said Norterra resident and community advocate Julie Read. The City of Phoenix bought land at I-17 and Jomax in 2006 for a permanent fire station to serve the Norterra neighborhood. But after the economy crashed in 2008, it could not afford to build one.
