Photo gallery: A look inside Eagle Mountain’s 2 new fire stations

Eagle Mountain city officials along with Unified Fire Authority and community members gathered Monday to celebrate, not one, but two brand new fire stations that will serve the Eagle Mountain residents.

Station 251 is located at 3726 N. Pony Express Parkway while station 253 is located at 1210 Mid Valley Road.

Photojournalist Megan Nielsen covered the festivities including the pulling apart of a fire house, a fire fighters’ version of a ribbon cutting.
