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

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

    Young's family was also at the scene this morning, 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.
