An old Evansville firehouse will soon become a new west side dentist's office.
The former hose house number 5 on Saint Joe Avenue went on the auction block Thursday morning.
Doctor Wes Brown purchased the building for $200,000.
Brown and his wife have two other dental offices they plan to combine into the new office on the west side.
The auction drew a lot of people, some to bid, others just to travel down memory lane.
The fire department left the building for a new facility in 1988.
Since then, it has been used for several businesses... most recently an advertising agency.
