NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A new fire station has opened in a New Orleans neighborhood still recovering from Hurricane Katrina.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu joined city and state officials and representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency for Thursday’s opening of the $4.3 million station.

The city says the 9,000 square-foot facility is the first new fire station constructed in the city since Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.
