A County Tyrone fire station has been put up for sale.

The two-storey property on Mountjoy Road in Omagh is on the market at around £100,000.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service are due to leave the premises at the end of March 2014.

The property listing says: "The accommodation provides a number of offices and stores on the ground and first floor in a variety of sizes and kitchen and bathroom facilities."

The company selling the station, BTW Shiells, added: "The property also benefits from private parking to the front and side of the building."

The station opened in 1957 and independent councillor Patrick McGowan, a former firefighter who worked out of the station for 25 years, told BBC Radio Foyle that there has been very little change to the building over the years.
