HOBBS, N.M. - It's the first full day of shifts at the new Hobbs fire station.
The new building houses station number 4 and the public safety complex.
The building was paid for by state and county grants along with city money.
Assistant Fire Chief Kris Allen tells NewsWest 9, the new station was a blessing because of the recent growth Hobbs has seen.
The grand opening of the new station is Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m.
