Holland Paving buys Tyler fire station

Wichita's Holland Paving paid $396,000 Thursday for a former Sedgwick County fire station at 401 S. Tyler.

The building will house an expansion of the company's concrete division, said auctioneer Lonn McCurdy of McCurdy Auction.

The station is located near Holland's main office at Tyler and Kellogg.

McCurdy said more than 100 people attended the auction.

"That's a really good, active auction in this economy," he said.
