Tesla Spontaneously Bursts into Flames, Required Thousands of Gallons of Water to Extinguish

Firefighters in Sacramento, California, were recently shocked to discover a Tesla Model S completely engulfed in flames on the highway. The electric vehicle had spontaneously caught fire and was producing an immense amount of smoke and heat as it moved down the highway. Fire units from the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District were quickly dispatched to take care of the situation, with two fire engines, a water tender, and a ladder truck all being involved at the scene.

After reaching the blazing vehicle, firefighters used over 6,000 gallons of water to put out the green inferno that had taken over the entire front hood of the expensive Tesla car. Remarkably, no one was injured during this incident. However, they did have difficulty putting out the fire due to its combustion source: batteries found in Tesla’s battery compartment which kept reigniting even after initial flames had been extinguished.

This is far from being an isolated incident. There have actually been several other occasions where Tesla vehicles have spontaneously caught fire. For example, in June 2022 firefighters were forced to use 4,500 gallons of water to extinguish an out-of-control blaze caused by another battery compartment in a Tesla car. Similarly, in December of 2022 reports came through about a Tesla that had caught fire inside a garage in St. Louis overnight. Fortunately, again no one was hurt but firefighters did manage to safely remove it from its location before extinguishing its flame emissions.

The cause for these dangerous events has not yet been determined and is still under investigation however it seems like clear that there is some kind of issue with battery compartments catching alight within electric vehicles produced by Elon Musk’s company which is an issue that should be addressed as soon as possible before any more lives are put at risk due to these spontaneous fires.
