Itâ€™s unclear where the fire originated; i.e., if it was from an electrical malfunction or another factor inside of the vehicleâ€™s cabin. Electrek says the incident is one of only a fewÂ known fires that occurred while the Model S wasnâ€™t charging.
The publication does note, however, that Model S fires arenâ€™t particularly unusual. The same model caught fire during a test drive last year, while Electrek also notes a an incident that saw a Model S that catch fire following an accident in Indianapolis.
Nobody was hurt
â€œWeâ€™re undergoing a full investigation and weâ€™ll share our findings as soon as possible,â€ a Tesla spokesperson told Electrek.
As you can see in the Tweet below, the aftermath of the fire isnâ€™t pretty. Weâ€™ll follow-up on this story if Tesla reports any unusual findings.
