- After months of construction, the Minocqua Fire Department could show off it's new home. The department held an open house for its new station Monday night.
The firehouse sits next to Minocqua's Chamber of Commerce building off highway 51. Chief Andy Petrowski says the biggest difference in the new building is how much more space they have in the new location.
"Our whole crew is very appreciative and very thankful for the town and tax payers and it's going to be a facility that's a great asset for this town I believe it'll help attract volunteers for years to come," said Petrowski.
In addition to the garage and training room, the new station also has a fitness room, lounge, and fire history room.
The project cost a little more than $2 million.
