Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner on Monday said fire crews were called to the 7800 block of West Denton Road, where a 72-year-old man went to get supplies from his workshop, when he found it on fire.  A deputy arrived at the scene and the building was fully involved in flames.

Wagner says four Corvettes between 1956 and 1969 , 1959 Cadillac Coupe Deville, 1976 Jeep, 1971 Datsun 240z, 1964 Jaguar XK, 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner, 1959 Chevy El Camino 409, and 1948, ’49, ’55 and 2008 Harley-Davison motorcycles were destroyed for an estimated loss of between $1-million to $2-million.  Wagner says some of this vehicles were fully or partially restored.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office determined the fire was accidental.  No one was hurt.
