Antique Cars Destroyed in Suburban Garage Fire

A pair of antique cars were destroyed in a fire near the Illinois-Wisconsin border on Saturday, officials say.

The vehicles, which date back to the 1920’s and 1930’s, were both destroyed in a blaze that took place in Richmond, authorities say. The fire was brought under control within a half hour of firefighters being called to the scene, but not before the vehicles and other personal items were destroyed.

According to authorities, fire crews had to switch out every few minutes because of frigid temperatures.

No one was injured in the fire, and the cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
