The Little Miami Joint Fire & Rescue District was created in 2003 by the merger of two fire departments on Cincinnati's east side.

The first station to be replaced was the old Newtown Fire Station, which had been housed in a converted 1840's church in the middle of downtown Newtown.

The new station is a converted E-Check vehicle emissions testing facility. The original E-Check building consisted of four high bays that were perfect for apparatus bays and an office area that was ideal for support spaces for the apparatus bays. A new addition was built onto the building to house living areas for the firefighters, office space and a training room. The new addition uses the same materials that were used on the original E-Check building (split face block), while introducing new materials and forms such as a pitched standing seam metal roof.

A glass public entrance pokes up above the roof plane, flooding the public entrance with natural light during the day and acting as a glowing marker of the entrance at night.
