“We will co­op­er­ate with the fire depart­ment’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

A Tesla all-elec­tric pas­sen­ger car burst into flames at a charg­ing sta­tion on Lan­tian Road in Pudong New Area Satur­day. Wit­nesses saw dense smoke com­ing from the ve­hi­cle but no in­juries were re­ported. Fire­fight­ers put out the fire be­fore it spread to other cars, though an­other Tesla next to it was slightly dam­aged. Tesla com­pany con­firmed that the ac­ci­dent oc­curred, but not while the ve­hi­cle was op­er­at­ing, and will co­op­er­ate in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the cause of the fire.
