ROME — A classic 1965 Chevrolet Nova was destroyed in a fire on Lauther Road in Rome Sunday morning, according to the Rome Fire Department.

The vehicle's owner had it up on a lift and was doing some welding on the undercarriage when the back seat caught on fire due to the heat about 10:30 a.m. Sunday, according to Rome Fire Chief Thomas Iacovissi. The owner lowered the car and dragged it to the driveway, where it went up in flames.

"He saved his garage, but lost his car," Chief Iacovissi said.

Rome firefighters responded and doused the blaze in the driveway. The chief said no one was injured.
