VIDEO: A regular home just wasn't interesting enough for one Kenosha woman. So instead of the white picket fence or home in a cul-de-sac, she bought a firehouse built in 1915, fixed it up, and has been happily living in it ever since. Rhonda Dutton wanted to find a unique home, just like her sister Terry Evans. But we will get to that later. So when Terry told Rhonda about a firehouse for sale in Kenosha, Rhonda knew she had to check it out. "We went upstairs, and I made an offer, and before we came downstairs there was a deal," Dutton said. She bought the home for about $110,000 back in 2008. There have only been three owners of the building including Rhonda. Before she purchased it, another individual owned it and used it as storage for his motorcycles. Before him, the firehouse belonged to the fire department.
