Six months after being forced out of the North Main Street fire station by an accidental blaze, local firefighters moved into their new home Monday.
Firefighters are now at the new $22 million public safety complex on East Street after temporarily setting up operations at the highway garage. The fire station on Plymouth Street will remain open.
Firefighters moved fire engines and other equipment into the facility at 500 East St., which will also house the police department. The new facility was being built at the time of the two-alarm fire at the North Main Street station. A fire engine caught fire about 2:40 a.m. Feb. 13 soon after firefighters returned from a call.
