The Houston Heights Fire Station is a building located at 12th Street and Yale Street in Houston Heights, Houston, Texas. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1] It is located in block #186.[2]

It is a 7,000-square-foot (650 m2) building constructed as Houston Heights' city hall and jail, and fire station in 1914. After annexation, it served as a city of Houston fire station from 1918 until 1995. It was Fire Station 14. The Houston Heights Association took a 30-year lease on the property from the city and refurbished the property.[3] By December 2009 the former city hall was for sale.[4]
