It was a rough start for Fire Station number 5 on Greens Prairie Road in College Station, but now it's all starting to pay off.
Wednesday Fire Chief magazine recognized the station for its outstanding architecture and design, and awarded it the gold medal in the combined-use category.
Fire Station #5 was the only Texas station recognized.
The award was part of the magazine's 6th annual nationwide Station Style Design Award program and will be published in the November issue of Fire Chief.
Fire Station #5 finally opened this month after a year of delays.
