A fire has destroyed 60 guitars and up to 100 paintings at the North Carolina home of Jim Avett. He is the father of Scott and Seth Avett of the Avett Brothers band. According to the Allen Volunteer Fire Department, the fire occurred at 12:53 p.m. Friday in the City of Concord. “The fire started from a golf cart,” Jim Avett posted on Facebook. “Half the house is totally beyond repair but this is not a knock-out punch,” said Avett.
