Disabled veterans need help after garage fire

- A place that is known for helping disabled military veterans needs help after a fire broke out Tuesday afternoon.

Concord Fire Department fought a fire that gutted a garage behind the Disabled American Veterans Clubhouse.

The garage stored cookers for food trucks and wheelchairs. The fire threatened the D.A.V. building and an apartment building.

A van used to transport disabled veterans and their spouses to and from the VA Hospital caught fire -- as well as a memorial wall with the names of all Cabarrus County soldiers killed in combat since World War I.

The fire burned a trailer and three food trucks. One of the food trucks may be able to be repaired, according to the fire department. The damage could add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control in 10 minutes of arrival. 

No one was injured. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
