Illinois fire destroys 100+ classic cars

- More than 100 classic cars were burned after a fire broke out.

A fire started at the Country Classic Cars in Staunton, Illinois. At least 12 fire departments were called in to fight the blaze as it raged through the cars.

After the fire was out, a field of scorched vehicles were all that was left behind.

The dealership is scheduled to open on Thursday. The business had a showroom for the classic cars, repair shop and sold classic cars. It opened in 1999 by a farmer who had a hobby for classic cars.

There were no reported injuries. The cause remains under investigation.
