CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston Fire Department will break ground on a new state-of-the-art fire station on King Street Friday.

Mayor Joe Riley, new Fire Chief Karen Brack, and members of city council will break ground on Fire Station 9 at 1451 King Street, at the corner of Heriot Street, at 10 a.m.

The 20,0000-square-foot facility feature five bays for trucks, administration offices, a hazardous materials unit, and a fitness room. There's also some room for expansion.

The current headquarters on Wentworth and Meeting streets will continue to be a functioning station but there are also plans to turn it into a public museum.

The new station cost an estimated $5.5 million, paid for by the city's capital building funds. The city expects the station to be completed by late 2013.
