Firefighters put out Tesla fire that kept reigniting in NorCal

Firefighters in the Sacramento area put out their first fire in a Tesla vehicle this week, but authorities said it would not be extinguished using normal methods. The video shows Tesla completely engulfed in flames when crews from the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department arrived. “It took a lot of time, water and thought outside the box to go out,” Metro Fire said on social media. The car continued to ignite and “exhale gases in the battery compartment”, according to the authorities. The car was in a local crash yard due to a collision a few weeks ago. Firefighters worked with crews in the wreck yard to move the Tesla to the side. Crews sprayed the battery compartment directly under the car, but it continued to ignite again. A small pit was created to put the car inside. Firefighters filled the pit with water, which completely submerged the battery compartment, authorities said. “The pit eventually reduced the total amount of water needed, estimated at 4,500 gallons, and reduced the flow of contaminated water,” Metro Fire said. After some work, the fire in the vehicle was completely extinguished. No one was reported injured.
