It will be interesting to see if they can find a root cause. We should NOT speculate on cause until some sort of investigation is completed. Hopefully the fire was put out before consuming onboard data collection devices (black box).
I can see the Sensationalist Headline on the National Nightly news already.
Another Tesla Explodes in flames!!!!
Run for the Hills. Driver narrowly escapes burning to death.
Meanwhile, 100 other vehicles caught fire somewhere in the US this morning that didn’t make the news beyond a few local news stories that needed filler content.
I once drove by a mini van at 2:00AM on the interstate, that was completely engulfed in flames. Plastics, vinyl and rubber burns very Red flames. The fire crews on the scene were not even trying to put it out at that moment I passed. The occupants of the vehicle were just standing clear of it watching everything go up in flames. They literally had nothing but the clothes they were wearing and whatever they grabbed exiting the vehicle. I couldn’t even imagine the anguish they were going through other than they all appeared safe and unharmed.
