RED BLUFF Calif. - The Stoll Fire in west red bluff on Saturday ripped through homes and business one of which belonged to Alfredo Palos.

Alfredo owns Red Bluff Auto Dismantling and he was one of the many owners who is coming back and picking through the wreckage

He said on Saturday he thought his business was destroyed after seeing a picture of fire coming out his front doors and windows.

After returning however Cal Fire Crews were able to save a lot of his property.

He estimates only around 10 to 20 percent of the cars on his lot are destroyed the rest have been saved.

Unfortunately, some cars like his1955 Chevy BellAir weren’t so lucky.

A car that was one of his favorites, the BellAirwas at one point all black with black interior but now it is only worth it to scrap the car he says. 

Fortunately, almost all of the cars inside the building were saved which included his personal collection of cool cars including a C3 Corvette, 69' Mustang fastback and a 1926 Ford Model T. 

The only damage was to Alfredo’s favorite pickup which he had for many years but he says that it is salvageable and he will rebuild it soon.

As for his business, he is waiting for insurance and health inspections to find out what the next steps are but he says no matter what he is going to rebuild and keep going.

Alfredo also says that because so much is left he will be back to business in no time and he would like to thank all of the fire crews that helped not only him but the entire community affected by the Stoll Fire.
