New fire district approved outside Bayou La Batre city limits

Posted: Updated:
BAYOU LA BATRE, AL (WALA) -

Voters in southern Mobile County have approved creating a new fire district.

It will be just outside the Bayou La Batre city limits and encompass Irvington, Dixon Corner and portions of Coden.

Residents and businesses in those areas will pay a $75 annual service fee.

Fire officials say the department already serves the areas in the new fire district but receive no funds to do so.

The money would help improve the department to provide better fire protection.
