The New Ashburn Firehouse

The new Ashburn firehouse broke ground on May 22, 2014. Almost exactly 2 years later, on May 15, 2016, Ashburn Volunteer Fire & Rescue  unveiled the new building to the public. This beautiful structure reflects the history of firehouses, with many touches bringing to mind the 1940s, along with the most modern features, such as the alarm system and bifold doors.

If you missed the open house, be sure to take advantage of the next one in the fall. In the meantime, enjoy these photos!
