On this day in 2010, a fire in a warehouse where Neil Young stored everything from vintage cars to guitar cases caused damage estimated at $1 million.
The cause was investigated, arson was ruled out. A further investigation determined that the fire started in a 1959 Lincoln Continental and spread to the warehouse. Young had converted the car with electric batteries and a biodiesel-powered generator as part of his company called LincVolt. The company promotes the conversion of gas-guzzling cars into vehicles that run on alternative energy.
