Luxury car admirers might want to look away: hundreds of vehicles were burnt out in a huge fire in the Italian port city of Savona. The gloomy scene, captured on video after the blaze, looks like a post-apocalyptic movie.
The fire, surprisingly, started with water: the sea rose and flooded the north-western Italian city, including two parking areas in the city port, on Monday evening. They were filled with hundreds of export-ready cars, including, according to local media, brand-new Maserati luxury vehicles. The salt water caused car batteries to explode and catch fire in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
