The Cape Coral Fire Department is starting work on their first new firehouse in almost a decade. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday morning for what will be Fire Station #11. That station will be on Burnt Store Road North near NW 11th Street. The department tells Fox 4 this will be their first new firehouse since 2008. They add the new station will help improve response times for people living in northwest Cape Coral. The 9,000+-square-foot fire station will cost $3,750,000, and will include two apparatus bays, stretching over 77 feet in length. Seven bunk rooms will serve as sleeping quarters for the crews when they are on duty. A full backup generator, along with a large capacity diesel storage tank, will provide power during any storm event.
