LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A city in Nebraska has sold a house for only $43. But that may turn into a bargain for local taxpayers.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports the city of Lincoln paid $675,000 for a land that will be used for a new fire station.

Assistant Fire Chief Pat Borer says a house on the property was recently sold through an online auction for $43. The buyer plans to move the house to another town, which means the city won't have to knock it down to make room for the new fire station.

Borer says that will save Lincoln thousands of dollars in demolition costs.

Public Safety Director Tom Casady says the ranch-style house with a two-car garage will be moved to Shubert, about 67 miles (107 kilometers) southeast of Lincoln.
