The fire at Clark Field, about three miles north of Justin, was discovered about 3 a.m. by the hangars' owner, L.E. Clark.
"The cat woke my wife up and then we saw the flames," Clark said. "It was burning about 100 feet from our house."
Inside the hangars were a 1926 Model T sedan, a 1928 Model A Sedan and an 1898 working model made by Henry Ford. Tools and records also burned in the
fire. He has insurance but not enough to cover all of the damage.
"It ruined three of my antique cars and the fire got over into another building," Clark said. "It pretty well made a mess."
There are about 25 planes at the airfield, but none were destroyed. Clark, who has lived at the airfield since 1976, has no idea what caused the fire.
"The fire chief is looking right now but he hasn't found anything yet," Clark said. "I have no idea what caused it."
