At least two vintage vehicles were destroyed in a Canyon Country garage fire Thursday afternoon.

Fortunately, the fire broke out next door to Los Angeles County Fire Station No. 107 on Soledad Canyon Road, near Solemint.

The fire was first reported at 2:30 p.m., with fire and smoke seen coming from the garage of a two-story condominium complex, Fire Department Supervisor Michael Pittman told The Signal.

“They knocked the fire down at 2:45 p.m.,” he said.  “There were no extensions of the fire into the adjacent building.

“And, there were no injuries. But, some vehicles were damaged in the fire,” Pittman said.

Cars burned included a Shelby Cobra and what appeared to be a 70’s Mustang.

Firefighters were still at the scene “mopping up” as of 3 p.m.
