CLINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - It's out with the old and in with the new.
The old, dilapidated Clinton High School on Mulberry Street in Clinton, Indiana has sat empty for quite some time.
On Tuesday, a Demo Ceremony was held at the former school, making way for a new fire house.
It was an opportunity for former students, staff and the community to get a last minute look at their former stomping grounds.
Officials say the current fire house was initially built for a grocery store and not fit for all their fire equipment needs.
"So, we'll be almost tripling the size of what we have right now," Clinton Fire Chief Chris Strohm said. "Which, that's just going to aid us to be able to provide better services and more services for the citizens here in Clinton and surrounding areas."
The new fire house will have four bays, space for meeting, training and living quarters.
$337,000 in grant money was allotted for the project.
A completion date for the new fire house is set for 2017.
