PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - The Paragould Fire Committee and City Council approved a land purchase for a new fire station.

According to Paragould Fire Chief Kevin Lang, the council approved a purchase of 14 acres of land on Highway 49 north of Orscheln Farm & Home.

Lang said the fire department has outgrown Station No. 1 which they moved into in the 1990s.

That building houses the administrative offices and most of the equipment.
