URBANA — Space at the fire station on Philo Road is getting a little too tight. Now, the department could get the space it needs.

The fire chief says the facility was built in 1969 and it doesn’t have enough room to fit all the amenities a current station needs. That’s why they’re looking to expand into the empty lot right next door.

The Urbana City Council will discuss terms of the contract for purchasing the lot at its meeting Monday night.
