Omar Garces of The Greenery delivers pine straw Wednesday to the Bluffton Township Fire District's new Station 30, which is nearing completion on Burnt Church Road across from M.C. Riley Elementary School. Capt. Randy Hunter, district public information officer, estimated firefighters would be in the new building by the end of the month, with a ribbon-cutting planned for the first week in August. The 7,200-square-foot station, with an estimated cost of $2.2 million, will replace a 34-year-old firehouse a few hundred feet away at 2 Bridge St. that has structural problems.
