The three-alarm blaze that caused $1.1 million in damage to a warehouse filled with rock legend Neil Young’s music equipment and memorabilia appears to have started in a one-of-a-kind hybrid car stored at the site, a fire official said Monday.

Neil had the 1959 Lincoln Continental (dubbed LincVolt, which runs on electric batteries and a biodiesel-powered generator) built in 2008.

The building of “LincVolt” was documented in a 4 part film.
