Albuquerque Fire Department Selling Off Old Fire Stations

The Albuquerque (NM) Fire Department is selling off old fire stations that are too old and too small for modern day firefighting.

KOB reports (http://bit.ly/1f1cv2M) that the stations that are being offered for sale have already been replaced by new stations.

For example, Fire Station 2 was built in 1926, the year Route 66 was created and the first Pontiac rolled off the assembly line, and was one of the first fire stations built by the Albuquerque Fire Department. The asking price for the firehouse is $480,000.
