Wow. That is a MAJOR DRAG. I hope no one got hurt. Seems the word "fire" is synonymous with California. I wish everyone in the golden state good luck.

That does suck, and must have been a really large and hot fire. Was he storing
any sort of petro-chemicals on sight? That fire must have been really hot.

Wow! That does suck Dave. The heat there was unbelievable! Look how the head studs are melted and mis-shapen.

So sorry for your friend.

I was at that shop with motohead a couple years ago.

Whole bunch tools, machines, and engines got burned up.

The only good thing about this fire is nobody got hurt.

That sucks for sure! Im glad nobody was hurt too. Hope he was insured and can
get some help from that. I take it this fire was not related to the wild fires or was it? I feel terrible for those poor people too.

No insurance, he was struggling with bills and just landed a big job to save the property, His daughter started a Go fund me Page if anyone wants to help, he needs to buy some new equipment to get this big job done to save his Home, These are really decent people who have just been handed a bad deal, Fire department thinks the fire started in a fluorescent light fixture.

Horrific and devastating! No insurance makes it a real tragedy.
Glad no one was hurt. But what a loss!

I pitched in a little, I know it's not much. But man, does fire suck when it's not in the right places.

'vairless. But not forever.
Cars need to drive to be alive. One that never leaves the garage may be perfect, but dead.

Thank you, this affects me as well as now I cannot have him blast my cars or make parts for me, We are trying to convert another shed into a temp shop for him to get the contract work done to pay his bills, this happened at the worst time.

BTW,folks. There are multiple Go Fund Me campaigns for Mike and his family.
Not that it matters.
Phil linked another one on the last page of this thread.

A horrible,horrible situation and my heart goes out to them.
