BREAKING: Fire Destroys $100K Worth Of Antique Motorcycles


MOBILE, AL (WKRG) A fire early Friday morning destroyed $100,000 worth of antique motorcycles, according to a homeowner.

Mobile Fire-Rescue responded to the fire on Oaklane Drive in Theodore around 1:45 a.m. The fire began in a 30’x65′ structure behind a house on Oaklane Drive.

Collector Mike Porter says he had 17 antique motorcycles in the building that caught fire. He also lost the equipment he uses to fix up bikes.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do,” said Porter. “My whole life is gone. There were some bikes in there that were very rare.”

You can see some photos of the collection that was destroyed on Porter’s website.

The homeowners were asleep inside the house when a neighbor spotted the fire. The fire did not spread to the nearby home, and no one was hurt.
