Well-known YouTuber loses all his cars in a violent fire

A significant part of the car culture in Ireland has gone haywire this week. According to sources, there is nothing to save at the site, which also housed a workshop for classic cars.

Everything is gone. This is how the people behind the YouTube channel Drift Games begin a video on top of the fire that destroyed their haunt on the outskirts of the Irish city of Dublin on Tuesday.

According to breakingnews.ie, for reasons still unknown, it started to burn around 23.00 Tuesday night.

And although as many as six teams of firefighters were quickly on the scene, nothing could be saved. In connection with the fire, locals were advised to close both doors and windows to keep the smoke and fumes from it out.

The local fire service announced on Wednesday morning that no one had been injured in connection with the fire. Not physically, anyway.

But psychologically it has taken a toll on the business owners, who had to see their life's work burn to the ground.

– Unfortunately, our family business is gone. It took 50 years to build up, but only 5 hours to burn down completely, writes Deane Motors, who until Tuesday made a living working with classic cars.

Not even the Drift Games business, which has made a name for itself on YouTube, is left with anything but ashes, rubble and buoyed iron.

Unfortunately, this is far from the first time that an entire life's work on four wheels has gone to waste. Last year, a well-known car factory completely burned down. And then even on Christmas Day.

Here, 100 firefighters were needed to put out the flames. When the fire was out of the factory, the emergency manager estimated that the extinguishing work would take 20 hours. Read more about that case here .
