Neil Young company sued over warehouse fire
Neil Young company sued over SF Bay area warehouse fire
By The Associated Press

SAN CARLOS, Calif. (AP) ' A company founded by Neil Young is facing a lawsuit over a fire in the San Francisco Bay Area that authorities say started in a vintage car the rocker had converted into a hybrid vehicle.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (http://bit.ly/ytJtkW) that Unigard Insurance Co. sued LincVolt LLC this week, accusing the company of negligence for converting the 1959 Lincoln Continental to run on electricity and a biodiesel-powered generator.

The suit seeks nearly $500,000 that Unigard says it paid to the owner of a building damaged in the 2010 blaze in San Carlos.



Fire officials say the blaze started in the car, dubbed the LincVolt. Young converted the car into a hybrid vehicle in a highly-publicized project to promote fuel-efficiency.

He did not respond to a request for comment.
