  • Moss Point Fire Station

    MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) - The century-old building that houses
    this coastal city's central fire station will go out of business
    sometime next year when the Moss Point Fire Department moves into
    new quarters.
    Aldermen recently voted to spend $150,000 to build the new
    station at the former Nelson Pontiac dealership lot on McInnis Ave.
    It will be funded through a 1998 improvement bond issue.
    The current fire station, built in 1903 as a city hall and a
    jail, was converted in the early 1970s into a fire station. It now
    has major roof damage and floods when it rains.
    Former Fire Chief Ed Hudson, who was in office when the building
    was converted into a fire station, said the old structure is
    "unsuitable for human living."
    "The rooms were too cramped for firefighters to live in and the
    rain would pour into the building when it stormed," he said.
    "That fire station has needed replacing for over a decade. It's
    good to see the aldermen finally do something about it."
