McKenzie Fire's proposed Leaburg Station

LEABURG: Since forming over 50 years ago as the Thurston-Walterville Rural Fire Protection District, McKenzie Fire & Rescue has increased its area of coverage. The original fire station was constructed at the junction of Millican Road and the McKenzie Highway with volunteer labor and donated materials in 1959. Two years later the district purchased its first fire truck.
