HINTON - Hinton fire officials said they are settled into their new department building.
Ray Pivont, chief of the Hinton Fire Department, said it took about a year to construct the building. Firefighters moved into the building in October.
Pivont said they have better living quarters for the firefighters now, in addition to more space. "We're happy to be in a new building. It gives us plenty of room to do the things we need to do that we didn't have at the old station," he said.
The department will be receiving a new ladder truck soon. Pivont said they needed one for years, but there was not any room for one at the former station.
