Duncan Chapel breaks ground on new fire station

GREENVILLE, S.C. — The Duncan Chapel Fire District recently broke ground on the new fire station on Foothills Road.

The facility is being built as a result of a referendum where voters overwhelmingly approved (72.14 percent) the issuance of a $1.5 million general obligation bond to construct and equip the station to improve the District’s protective capabilities.

Melvin Pace, a founding member of the District who passed away in August, was remembered during the groundbreaking.
