Firehouse #3 is sold

Firehouse 3 has been sold. The new owners hope to restore it to its original look as much as they can. It will be good to see the station hang around a while longer if everything goes as planned.

A nearly 100-year-old firehouse that was decommissioned earlier this year will become the headquarters of a local architectural company after the Roanoke City Council approved the building's sale Monday.

Interactive Design Group, currently housed on Norfolk Avenue Southwest, will give the city $171,000 for Fire Station 3, located at Sixth Street and Rorer Avenue Southwest.

The site is assessed at $321,800, according to city records.

The business plans to renovate both the two-story building's interior and exterior, according to city officials.
