New location for Peoria Fire Station approved

The Peoria City Council has given the fire department the green light to build a new fire station.

According to a Facebook post shared by the Peoria Firefighters Local 50 Union, the council approved the purchase of land to rebuild Station 4 at a new location.

The newly approved location will be on South Western Avenue and will replace the older, outdated location on South Jefferson Street.

Peoria’s Fire Chief Ed Olehy tells us ground could be broken as early as this fall.
