I'd be more worried about the customers cars
Why the person taking the photo didn't go over and save as many cars as possible for a building to self ignite at 5am something isn't right here

Indeed, he seems very highly regarded and much liked by the Skyline community too. Nasty thing to happen.

Got to feel for everyone losing their cars, and the mechanics losing all of their kit.

That's assuming the person taking the photos was linked to the company. Though even then you'd have to be mental to go running into a burning building for the sake of a few cars.

The picture was taken by the owner. And that yellow digger is being used by the fire brigade. So your theory is the owner torched his own business then waited for all the emergency services to show up.

Maybe wait for them to do the investigation first eh?

Could well be, many years ago a house down the road from us was set alight and the police did ask if anyone had seen someone hanging around before/during as arsonists tend to like to watch their work.

None the less my point still stands.

While a lot of people seems to be jumping to conclusions about why the owner did and didn't do things. It could be as simple as an electrical fault on one of the cars that went unnoticed. Or a ton of other reasons.

also to answer why he didn't move the cars outside. Maybe all the keys were locked in a cupboard in their office like a large majority of garages.

i knowi wouldn't want to run in to that inferno for some keys.

I wouldn't be rescuing any cars with the potential of gas cylinders going up and all the other flammable stuff associated with garages.
Tough **** I'll let my insurance sort it, I'm not risking my life for anyone so customers will have to get over that, after the payout the customers will get a better car out of it no doubt as they always do.

P.s did anyone see the fb post where somebody was begging for a steering wheel from the wreckage lol, they got absolutely slammed for it.

So they have to run into a burning building to get the keys to move them? and then fight the fire service to let them near the building?

come on.
