The boundary map for where Station No. 6 would respond is still being discussed. Southwest I Street will be split somewhere between Southwest 14th Street and Southwest Regional Airport Boulevard. Station No. 5, 800 S.W. Elm Tree Road, would cover north of the yet-to-be-determined line, and Station No. 6 would cover south of the line, Bentonville Fire Chief Brent Boydston said.
