Just saw a picture on the news and the whole yard is on fire! Hopefully they are able to save some of it! I can't find any photos but I am sure there will be some up later today. Couldn't freeze the screen on the tv quick enough

is this the beardy guy with the massive collection we bring up annually? What a shame, but it looks like he could score big if the entire mess was insured properly.

Sucks but how the hell do bicycles catch on fire and spread to metal like that?

Looks like the rumored meth lab out back finally went up in flames. Bummer deal for sure! Been there many times and was only able to pull a few things out over the years.

When you get out by Payson it is very hot and dry. There have been a lot of fires in that area over the years. Imagine how much Magnesium is in that acreage of motorcycles. Magnesium fires are the worst and they spread fast.

Wonder if old dude had an inventory system and insurance. Some neighbor was probably tired of looking at that shit and lit the match

yah, im thinking this was no accident. kind of like shooting the barking dog trick. I bet the old coot wishes he sold some of his bikes to us now huh? No way an insurance company is going to pay him anything more then scrap prices for his piles. Insurance: How much do you say your kids bikes were worth? Agent: Our databases show that the value of a childs bike is between 5 and 10 dollars in operating condition.

Wow, bummer. Lots of cool old stuff in there. Hopefully any bikes that were burned, but not destroyed will be salvaged.

The only way I could see an insurance company paying out on this is if he had it insured as a business and the policy specified how much the business and property was worth. Remember a homeowners policy does not cover collections unless you have a rider on the policy indicating specifically that they are covered.

What a shame. I imagine all those tires added a lot of fuel to the fire, too. My first thought was arson but I agree with thumperpilot, too, it looks like it may have been a classic meth lab explosion.

Insurance?



I can imagine the phone call "What would you like to insure with us today sir?"

Junk.


"Did you say junk?"

Yes.

"Trash? damaged and inoperable items.. junk?"

Yep, junk.
