Bargersville firefighters have moved into a new multimillion-dollar station on State Road 135

The Bargersville Fire Protection District has closed its 58-year-old headquarters on South Baldwin Street in the heart of town, after opening a new $2.1 million building. A crew of firefighters, an ambulance and the administration have moved into the new headquarters.

A contractor has nearly completed work on the 15,000-square-foot building that’s more than twice as large as the old station, Fire Chief Jason Ramey said. The new station has a training room and separate administrative section that the old headquarters did not.

Eleven firefighters will work at the new station at 3991 State Road 135, southeast of the Whiteland Road intersection and less than two miles away from the current station.
