A recent fire left Chadwick’s Towing of Cobourg, Ontario, grappling with over $400,000 in damages.

Rob Chadwick, owner of Chadwick’s Towing, said the damage was done to a 2006 heavy hauling tow truck that had functioned as a show piece. The vehicle, which was the only of its kind from Toronto to Montreal, had only been in active use since 2008.

Chadwick told the Peterborough Examiner that he felt the fire was suspicious, as the truck had been stored in a locked and fenced compound for the two days before the fire. Firefighters have yet to determine a cause for the blaze.
