ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Thursday was a big day for the Allentown Fire Department.
The ribbon was cut on the new East Side Fire Station on Irving Street.
The original station was closed in 2011 due to structural damage.
Fire officials said the new station has more space, including women's quarters, which the old station didn't have.
Firefighters have already started moving into their new quarters.
