(WDEF)  City and community leaders broke ground Thursday morning for a new, state-of-the-art fire station.
     The new fire hall on 8th Avenue will replace the original fire station number nine, built back in 1929.
     It should take about six months to build.
     The LEED certified, one-story double bay fire station will cost around $1.3 million.
     Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke said, "We're carrying on the tradition of Eastlake by bringing the original fire pole from 1929 to the new station.  Here today we had a couple of residents, together they've lived in the community for 126 years that shows how you really can see the generations of growth in East Lake."
     Construction is expected to begin early this fall.
