GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Greene County Western Fire District held an open house at their new fire station on Saturday.

Station Five opened less than a year ago and the department also got a new fire engine recently.

Chief James Potter said this location was selected for the station in hopes that the department would receive a better ISO rating, which could help reduce community members' insurance rates.

"We're trying to get our stations positioned, which will do the most good for the most people," Chief Potter said.

The open house provided residents with an opportunity to see the new $205,000 truck and look around the station.
