NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) -- Officials with a southern Indiana museum that showcases vintage fire engines say they'd like for the museum to remain in the Ohio River city of New Albany.
 
The board of the Vintage Fire Museum and Safety Education Center had considered moving the museum to neighboring Jeffersonville. But museum board president Curt Peters tells the News and Tribune (http://bit.ly/15HQaoP ) his first choice is keeping the museum's collection in New Albany.
 
Peters says the museum hasn't been able to reach an agreement to buy its current home in a former auto building. But he says the museum's board is interested in a buying a former New Albany church. He says the museum could use both floors of that two-story building.
