If you're in the market for a fire station, you're in luck.
The city of Milford plans to sell its 204 Melba St. firehouse at a public auction on Saturday, May 10. The bidding will start at $477,000.
Fire Station 6 sits on about 20,000 square feet of land. The city purchased the property on May 24, 1944. According to the Milford Mirror, the station closed down when its operation moved to the East Side Fire Station to merge with the Kings Highway station.
Other than removing the generator, communication tower and related equipment, the city plans to sell the building "as is," according to a news release from the city of Milford.
The auction will start at noon. Candidates are required to register by thirty minutes prior to the event. The bid packages are available for download on the city website.
Anyone with questions on the auction can contact the Office of the city attorney at 2013-783-3250 between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
