Some St. Joseph firefighters will soon have a new place to call home.

The new Fire Station 12 on St. Joseph Avenue is nearly complete.

Work is now underway on the living quarters and truck bays.

The warmer weather earlier this week allowed for crews to work on the stucco surface on the outside of the old structure.

The crew at Fire Station 12 is ready to get in their new facility.

William Martinez with the St. Joseph Fire Department said, "We will be able to house a lot more equipment and be able to pull the truck out in the street and get the truck out in the street and check things out. It will help us a lot."
  
Personnel expect to move in to the living quarters by April 1.
  
The completion date is slated for June 10.
