Fire Destroys Austrian Motorcycle Museum Along with All Contents

TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum Fire

Yesterday a massive blaze was seen from miles away, coming from Austria’s TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum. The fire has destroyed the entire building along with around 230 irreplaceable motorcycles.

Fire crews were able to prevent loss to the surrounding buildings but the museum and its rare contents are completely destroyed.

At this time, the cause of the blaze is unknown, but local reports do say no one was physically harmed in the fire.
