PEOPLE IN BRIEF: Warehouse fire started in Neil Young's car

SAN CARLOS, Calif. — Fire officials in California said a fire at a warehouse that stored memorabilia belonging to Neil Young started in a vintage car the singer had converted into a hybrid vehicle.

Belmont-San Carlos Fire Marshal Jim Palisi told the San Mateo County Times the Nov. 9 fire began in Young’s 1959 Lincoln Continental and spread to the nearby warehouse in the San Francisco Bay area. Young had converted the car to run on batteries and a biodiesel-powered generator as part of his LincVolt project to create the world’s most efficient full-size vehicle.

Fire crews were able to save about 70 percent of the warehouse’s contents, including other cars and music equipment belonging to Young.

Hulk Hogan adds ex-wife as defendant to lawsuit

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Hulk Hogan’s attorneys have added his ex-wife as a defendant to a lawsuit with his insurance broker.

The paperwork adding Linda Bollea to the lawsuit was done Tuesday. Hogan’s real name is Terry Bollea.

The lawsuit claims Wells Fargo Insurance Services didn’t set Hogan up with an umbrella policy that would have protected his net worth in an event like the car crash involving his son and a friend. Hogan settled a lawsuit with the family of the young man critically injured in the crash, but the terms were not disclosed.
