 Firefighters were called to 1333 Slayton at 11:09 p.m. Saturday where a wooden privacy fence was burning. The fire was quickly knocked down, but had already melted siding on a detached garage.

 The fire also caused heavy damage to a 1987 Ford conversion van that was parked next to the fence, Boyle said. It extended into the interior of the van. Damage was estimated at $2,000 to $3,000.

 A classic car, belonging to a neighbor, on the other side of the fence was also damaged. Boyle said the 1972 Pontiac LeMans had about $3,000-$4,000 worth of damage.

 About 30 feet of fence burned.

 Boyle said the fire is still under investigation, but does not appear to be intentionally set.



Woah that's extremely unlucky but don't worry. These days, restoring a broken down car can be quite easy, well except for costing you a decent sum of money you can get your Pontiac back and at the same time make it look better. There are a lot of JCW car parts that you can check out to help you in restoring that damaged car.
