Yakima County Fire District 3 covers one of the largest zones from Naches all the way to White Pass.
Fire Chief Alan Baird said that due to the large zoning area, they need equipment for house fires to water rescue and the room to store all their gear is just about full.
“Fire services change. The amount of calls, the type of calls. All of that has changed. Our equipment has increased, the size of equipment has increased over the years,” he said.
Firefighters at District 3 have made the most of the space they've been given. However, over the years that space has run out.
The building they're currently using was a super market, which means it wasn't made to accommodate everything fire fighters may need.
