News from the UK: fire destroys sports cars

A fire has destroyed at least seven sports cars at a service garage in Longford, England. Firefighters were able to prevent other cars from getting destroyed. Unfortunately seven cars were completely ruined and another fifteen damaged. The fire may have been caused by an electrical fault at TVR Performance and Service Centre.

Nearly 45 firefighters were needed at the site when the fire just after midnight. 21-year-old Richard Peacock, company director and TVR-owner, said "it's heart-breaking, being my pride and joy". His car was supposed to be ready for a drive next week after a number of repairs.
