    Any idea what caused the fire?
    I'm surprised they didn't seem to have a fire suppression system... it being an explosive environment.

    Looks a lot of heat from the fire as the alloy on the cosworth has completely melted, could be from a spark from a weld onto some rags, as an electrician I wouldn't rule out a loose connection possibly a neutral on a piece of heavy amperage equipment like a welder

    I've just tested a garage who specialises in restoring jensons interceptors, and wouldn't say the premises is safe
    Horrible too see

    How would insurance cover work in a case like this? Would customers cars and parts be covered in full under the insurance of the business? Or is it up to individuals to argue their car's respective values with their own insurers as a non fault claim? The latter sounds like it could leave a lot of people out of pocket
