A number of classic cars have been destroyed and damaged by a fire, which spread throughout a garage in Port Richmond, Philadelphia, according to 6 ABC Action News.
It is thought that the value of the vehicles affected by the blaze totals more than a million dollars, which will, doubtlessly, lead to problems for the garage owners.
Thankfully, there were no injuries incurred during the incident, but fire fighters found it difficult to control the inferno enough to preserve the valuable autos which it was consuming.
All 18 cars stored within the garage were owned by members of the Latin Cruisers car club and the members had arrived the day of the fire, with the hope that they would be able to prepare their autos for an upcoming show.
Mr Flores said the Ford Maverick and his Shelby were worth an estimated $200,000, which he said was a superfluous amount, because insurance would cover the cost. However, the emotional damage done will be harder to quantify in terms of dollars.
