Campbell Township (IN) New Fire Station Open

The previous fire station was located at the edge of Butlerville on U.S. 50. Built in 1961, and only 2,400 square feet in area, the building was not big enough to house all the fire departments trucks. It did not have space for training exercises, classes or meetings of the 15 to 20 members of the department. The old station did not heat properly and it also had a problem with drainage of rain water, often forcing the firemen to stand in a layer of water when working in the building, Campbell Township Fire Chief Don Biehle said.

The new 5,000-square-foot building has five bay areas for the housing of trucks and equipment. There is enough space in the building to provide for offices, training exercises, classroom work, a kitchen and social room. There is enough room on the surrounding outside property to allow for additional training activities and community social events, Biehle said.
