TOPEKA (KSNT) – A garage fire in Topeka Friday morning destroyed some classic cars.
The building in the 900 block of Mulvane was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. The total loss was estimated at $135,000 because two classic Shelby Mustangs inside the structure were completely destroyed.
The structure and garage were found to be vacant.
Firefighters were initially hindered by high voltage power lines that had fallen down across the parking lot. Westar Energy responded to the scene to turn off the power.
Fire suppression crews were able to get the fire under control, keeping it contained to the garage structure.
The structure and contents were considered a complete loss.
