HOBBS, NEW MEXICO - Construction crews in Hobbs will soon be breaking ground on a new fire station.

The Hobbs Fire Chief tells NewsWest 9 thanks to a severance tax bond, state dollars will help pay for a new sub-station in the northwest part of town.

He says the city has been looking into building a new station for several years.

The northwest part of Hobbs has grown over the years, which is why firefighters expect a new station to be a big help.

Construction will likely start within the next two months.
