Fire damages Neil Young memorabilia
SAN CARLOS, CALIF. (AP) - A fire at a San Francisco Bay area warehouse early Tuesday damaged a vintage car and other memorabilia belonging to singer Neil Young, authorities said.
The 10,000-square-foot building in San Carlos contained only items belonging to Young and his family, including six vintage cars and paintings and what appears to be cases of musical equipment, said Belmont-San Carlos Fire Chief Doug Fry.
Some of the memorabilia was removed as the fire burned, but it’s not clear how much was salvaged, Fry said.
No one was injured.
Calls to representatives for Young were not immediately returned.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation although it did not appear to be suspicious, officials said.
The 64-year-old Canadian-born singer and songwriter was a member of Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills before embarking on a solo career that produced such hits such as “Heart of Gold” and “Southern Man.” He has also played with Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Young, an avid collector of classic cars, has more recently worked on a project to turn his 1959 Lincoln Continental convertible into an electric vehicle.
