BATON ROUGE - Firefighters in Baton Rouge held a grand opening today to show off a new firehouse.

The new Fire Station No. 8 replaces the old station on Wooddale Boulevard, which was built in 1950 and then extensively remodeled in 1988. The 8,400-square-foot station cost the city about $2.3 million to build.

The building is one of six new fire stations constructed recently in Baton Rouge.

News 2 investigates what happened with the old buildings left behind this Thursday at 10 p.m. in a special report, "Forgotten Firehouses."
