Plans for firehouse near Gulf Shores airport scuttled

Mayor Robert Craft said Monday that the city is scrapping plans to build an estimated $4.5 million fire station and a multimillion dollar community storm shelter near Jack Edwards Airport.

Instead, the mayor said, City Hall is negotiating with Baldwin EMC to buy its shuttered building a few blocks north of City Hall on West First Street in hopes of turning it into a new primary fire station.
