Around 7:00 AM this morning, a fire broke out in a storage building in the community of Port Lambton, just outside of Sarnia, Ontario.
While the building was primarily used to store boats, our sources say there were dozens of collector cars inside. Boat owners tend to have more than their fair share of disposable income and with disposable income usually comes the odd toy car or two and nothing cheap either.
The contents of the storage shed apparently contains somewhere in the neighbourhood of 65 boats. Tucked in between those boats are said to be very desirable classic vehicles. Reports on how many cars may be destroyed vary and there has been no indication yet of what type of cars are involved but we are following the story closely to build a list of the dearly departed.
Most boats are manufactured from fibreglass and the resulting the fire created masses of black smoke. Local residents were cautioned to stay indoors to prevent breathing issues. As of this afternoon, fire fighters had the blaze under control. We will keep tabs on the story as it develops to see what sort of automotive carnage has occurred.
Watch a fibreglass Corvette race car burn to a crisp after the jump.
