The Orange Rural Fire Department will celebrate the grand opening of a third station at 2510 Walker Road in Hillsborough on Saturday.
The fire department hopes the new location will help the department better respond to the northeast area of its 64-square mile district, which is located in central Orange County. This northeast area includes Hillsborough’s Churton Grove community.
The grand opening will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
It will include fire truck rides, a bounce house and the Fire Safety House — a mobile travel trailer resembling a scaled-down house to teach children what to do in a fire.
The fire department will also sell hotdogs and snacks during the event.
