DETROIT -

The more than 80-year-old downtown headquarters of the Detroit Fire Department is for sale.

Newspaper reports say the sale is planned, but there's no set price. Estimates say the five-floor, roughly 62,000-square-foot building near Cobo Center could go for more than $1 million.

Jeff Hillman, a real estate specialist, says it's "an important architectural building." It was built in 1929 and this is the first time it's been on the market.

The old temporary location of the MGM Grand Casino in Detroit is being renovated into the new home for the city's police and fire departments.
