    One of Neil Young's vintage cars, memorabilia musical instruments and art were damaged during a three-alarm fire in San Carlos, Calif. Tuesday morning, according to the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department and The Associated Press.

    The early-morning warehouse fire burned through some of what guitar legend Young had stored there.  The fire department assessed they saved about 70 percent of Young's items.

    Young's family was also at the scene with a photographer to help document the damage.

    Reports were first received at 2:55am for a fire burning at 595 Quarry Rd, according to the Belmont-San Carlos dispatcher. The building is estimated at 10,000-square-feet.

    That address is associated with Fable Inc., a manufacturer of  architectural metalwork for homes and businesses, according to the  manufacturer's website.

    The manufacturer describes the warehouse as a 15,000-square-foot  space devoted to the production of railings, gates, doors, and balconies.
