HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- Huntsville police and fire officials are joining forces -- literally.

The city is opening its first combined fire hall and police precinct in the next couple of weeks. The $5.3 million, 33,000-square-foot complex has dormitory space for firefighters and officers, a modern kitchen, bays for fire trucks and office space for both departments.

City officials say combined stations save money and help create close ties between firefighters and police officers. Officials estimate the new building will save the city $3.7 million in lease and utility costs over the next decade.

Other such stations are planned in Huntsville.
