An antique 1964 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III Saloon once owned by Sir Elton John caught fire on Bayshore Road at the I-75 overpass Friday morning.
According to Bayshore Fire Rescue: “Quick thinking by our business partners Paintings and Coatings kept the fire in check by using a garden hose until we arrived.”
After the fire, Bayshore Fire said they found out the car owned by a Johnny Long of Bonita Springs was once owned by Sir Elton John.
“Well….no wonder it caught fire – it is still hot stuff!” the fire department posted on Facebook, with a sense of humor.
There were no injuries.
