Default Neil Young Warehouse Fire Causes $1 Million In Damages - 11-10-2010, 02:05 PM

Neil Young warehouse fire causes $1.1 million in damages from vintage cars to musical equipment. I can't imagine all the stuff on the inventory list. Hope he has insurance.

More info:

The San Jose Mercury News reports that a San Carlos, California warehouse filled with Neil Young's music equipment, vintage cars and other memorabilia burned in a three-alarm blaze early Tuesday, causing an estimated $1.1 million in damage.

Workers and friends spent the day moving guitars, canisters of film, framed photos and other items that had been in the warehouse. Young, who lives in a home near La Honda, arrived at the site late in the day and surveyed the destruction.

Investigators have ruled out arson but didn't say Tuesday what caused the fire.

The roughly 10,000-square-foot building sustained $300,000 in damage, and Young's possessions that burned were worth about $800,000, said Belmont-San Carlos Fire Marshal Jim Palisi.

"A lot of it is musical instruments and electronic equipment," he said. "It's very expensive."

No one was injured in the fire.

The fire broke out about 2:55 a.m., and crews had the flames under control by 3:45 a.m., said Belmont-San Carlos Fire Chief Doug Fry, adding that firefighters saved up to 70 percent of the memorabilia, including six classic cars, that were stored in the warehouse.

At least one of the cars was damaged by the fire, but authorities and Young's representatives didn't say what condition the music equipment and film were in after the blaze.
