Most insurance companies list fire damage as 100% right off, no chance of repair as the damage to panels / structural effects from the heat means they won't allow them to be put back on the road. Well, that's what some insurance assessors told me a few years back.

That is quite simply awful.
I don't think words can describe how you must be feeling.
My heart goes out to you all.

Count your blessings that its only metal your mourning, allthough it's precious metal. Not nice to see when it's someone elses cars, so how you must feel as it's yours is hard to comprehend. Hope it can be resolved via the insurance etc :cry:

What a tragedy. So sorry to hear.

As you start to think about how to recover from this, perhaps there are things that we at the ssvc can do to help.... Help sourcing replacement tools, spares etc etc.

This is just the kind of time that being in club should come to the fore.
