Construction on a new Roanoke fire station has reached the halfway point. Roanoke Fire-EMS Chief David Hoback said the new Fire Station 7 in Grandin Village is still on track to be ready at the end of the year. The new Station 7 stands where the old firehouse had been for 94 years. Much of the framework is done, and crews have already installed a brick facade on one side of the building. Hoback hopes the station will blend the charm of the old structure with the needs of a modern fire department. "This is the fourth new fire station I've been privileged to be a part of in Roanoke,” Hoback said. “To see a new structure come out of the ground that will serve our community for the next 100 years is amazing." Hoback said the station will likely open around December.
