Tesla Car Fire! (Plus Incident Report from the Fire Department On Scene)

So who is ready to have to do a little extrication techniques at a care fire?  Sounds like that happened to our brothers from the Regional Fire Authority of Kent, Washington!


In an incident report released under Washington state’s public records law, firefighters wrote that they appeared to have Tuesday’s fire under control, but the flames reignited. Crews found that water seemed to intensify the fire, so they began using a dry chemical extinguisher.


After dismantling the front end of the vehicle and puncturing holes in the battery pack, responders used a circular saw to cut an access hole in the front section to apply water to the battery, according to documents. Only then was the fire extinguished.

Firefighters arrived within 3 minutes of the first call but crews remained on scene for 2 1/2 hours.

Telsa Motors has released a bunch of information for responders.  Check out the information below:
