FARGO -- Tim Thein drove nearly 200 miles to save thousands of dollars and dozens of trees.

The Clara City, Minn., resident landed his dream home Thursday in an auction of houses and other buildings that were bought out because of flooding issues. He paid $23,500 for the six-bedroom, 4½-bath brick home that was sold to the government for nearly $380,000. The homes will be either moved or scavenged for parts.
