The Tesla caught fire while charging while its owner was asleep
The Tesla Model S electric car caught fire while charging and burned down the house while its owner was sleeping. This is reported by The Washington Post.
The incident occurred at the end of 2020, but it became known only now.
The fire started in one of the two electric vehicles. When this happened, the owner received a notification on the phone that the charging of the car was interrupted, which woke the man up.
12 minutes after that, the fire had already spread to the second electric car and began to spread through the house.
The fire inspector, who investigated the cause of the fire, called the thermal control system of the car one of the factors of the incident.
The publication notes that this incident is a clear example of what can happen if you leave the car to charge overnight. This problem has already been made public after a number of electric car manufacturers warned vehicle owners not to leave them unattended while charging.
