Acadia Parish will be building a new fire station soon.
The Police Jury has approved a bond sale to fund the second District 11 station, which will be constructed on Eleanor Road.
District 11 Fire Chief Chad Monceaux said he’s been able to get some donations from across Louisiana and Texas to provide the district with trucks and equipment. He still needs trucks and equipment for the new station, he said.
The volunteer fire district is about five years old, and serves the mostly rural area around Crowley.
