Hot property: Old firehouse in Pittsburgh for sale

PITTSBURGH (AP) - September 6, 2010

City officials say Engine House No. 16 has 6,500 square feet of space, 16-foot ceilings and a full basement. It was built nearly a century ago and is in fair condition.

The fire trucks and alarm bells are long gone, since the red-brick structure hasn't been used as a station in decades. The appraised price is $90,000.

Rob Stephany, executive director of the Urban Redevelopment Authority, says the East End building is suited for an architect's studio, condominiums or a home-business combination.
