The city broke ground on the project in December of last year. Firefighters with the department had a hand in designing the new building to help meet their needs, City Manager D.E. Sosa previously told Port Arthur Newsmedia.

The current fire station was built in 1957.

The address for the new building is 5911 West Washington in Groves.
