Fire destroys Vo-Tech teacher's classic cars

CATAWISSA -- Awakened by crackling sounds and a glow through his bedroom window, Lanny Fetterman feared for his garage.
'My first thought was, 'All my toys are in there,'' the Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech teacher said. When he raced outside early Monday it was too late to save the cars, including a 1967 Pontiac Firebird his Vo-Tech students spent more than 1 1/2 years restoring.
'It was gorgeous, and now it's just a pile of smoldering rubble,' said Fetterman, 55, who had bought the car in 1972. Also consumed were a 1992 Corvette, a 1998 Chevrolet Silverado, and a 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible, said Fetterman, who was trying to find out whether his insurance covered fire damage. A state police fire marshal was investigating the blaze.
'At least no one was hurt and my house is still here,' Fetterman said. '(But) losing the Firebird is just like losing an old friend.'"
