Classic Cars Destroyed in Fire in Ohio Facility

By ,

An early-morning fire that gutted a facility in Harrison Township, Ohio this week has destroyed an unknown number of classic cars, according to whio.com. The facility belongs to America’s Packard Museum, and may have been used for the restoration of vehicles intended for display in the museum, which is located in nearby Dayton, Ohio.

Three buildings were affected by the fire, with the museum-owned facility suffering the worst damage. Reports from some sources are indicating that some of the vehicles housed in the building may have been saved.

An investigation has been launched to determine both the cause of the fire and the extent of the damage to the collection of vehicles found within the gutted building. Initial findings are showing the fire may have been caused by human activity in an unsecured section of the warehouse.
