Someone dropped off their newborn baby at a fire station in Fort Worth.

According to a release from the city of Fort Worth, an infant just hours old was dropped off at Fort Worth Fire Station 38 on September 26 at 8:30 am.

The release says that the newborn appears to be in good health. Firefighters provided care until CPS was able to pick the baby up.

There's currently no information about the baby's gender or other details, but a representative from The Fort Worth Fire Department and Alliance for Children will share more information at 11:30 am.

Station 38 is at 13280 Park Vista Blvd., which is located in far north Fort Worth, past Keller, near Trophy Club and Roanoke.

Alliance for Children has played a crucial part in training for the Fort Worth Fire Department’s Safe Baby program.

All 43 Fort Worth Fire Stations are considered "Safe Baby" sites. The Safe Baby Site program allows a confidential and safe alternative to newborn abandonment.
