Neil Young Sued by Insurance Company Over Fire

A fire broke out in 2010 at a facility where musician Neil Young stored musical equipment, vintage cars and memorabilia. He sustained over one million dollars in damage to his property. To add insult to injury, Young is now being sued by an insurance company because they claim he is at fault for the fire. Ouch!
According to the San Jose Mercury News, Unigard Insurance paid the warehouse's owner $500,000 to fix the building and they are looking to recoup that amount from the singer/guitarist/legend since they believe that his 1959 Lincoln Continental, which he converted to run on electricity, caused the fire to start. Hmmmmmmm.
Young did say that the car, which he calls the "Linc Volt," was recharging unattended at the time of the fire. We're not sure if that validates the insurance company's claims, though. For his part, Young has not commented on this new claim and this suit yet.
What do you think of this situation regarding Neil Young?
