    Fire officials in California say a fire at a warehouse that stored priceless memorabilia belonging to free world rocker Neil Young started in a vintage car that the singer had converted into a hybrid vehicle, according to the Associated Press.

    Local fire Marshal Jim Palisi told the San Mateo County Times that the November 9 fire began in Young's 1959 Lincoln Continental and spread to the nearby warehouse in the San Francisco Bay area. Young had converted the car to run on batteries and a biodiesel-powered generator as part of his LincVolt project to create the world's most efficient full-size vehicle. Young says workers hope the car's computer will shed light on what caused the vehicle to go up in flames.

    Fire crews were able to save about 70 percent of the warehouse's contents, including other cars and music equipment belonging to Young, which is good news.
