neil_young San Carlos, Nov 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The fire that gutted the rented warehouse of singer Neil Younger is now estimated to have caused a damage worth some $1.1 million. The fire broke out on Tuesday morning at the San Carlos warehouse.

According to the fire authorities, the fire caused $300,000 damage to the structure and $800,000 to the damage of the contents of the structure. The fire started around 2:55 a.m. in the morning and firefighters responded promptly to quench the razing inferno. Initially, it was estimated that the damage to the structure was $250,000 and that of the content was $750,000 but was reviewed upward afterwards.

Among the contents that were destroyed were memorabilia and vintage cars. Fortunately, about 70 percentage of the content of the warehouse were saved from the fire and that minimized the possible damage to the warehouse. After the blaze was extinguished, reps of Young were at the warehouse to expect what could be salvaged and so was the warehouse owner.

The fire department is still investigating the cause of the fire. It is currently not known what caused the fire but it is believed that the fire started from inside the warehouse. The blaze did not result in injury to anyone.
