If you're looking to purchase a unique building, a former firehouse in Freeport is available for purchase.

It was a dream of mine as a kid to live somewhere cool like a fire station.

Think about it. There's a pole to slide down. Lots of fun equipment to play with. Plus, some really big garage doors. It would be awesome.

Some of my friends in college rented an old firehouse. It was a great location for parties.

I've even been to fire department themed restaurants. They are always a good time.

What if you could buy your own fire station?

Well, now you can.

According to journalstandard.com,

"There's a former fire station in Freeport for sale."

The city council approved the sale and bidding starts on May 7th.

There's only one problem. It's a one-story building. That means no fire pole to slide down. I don't know about you, but that's a deal breaker for me.
