“It takes special training and understanding of EVs to ensure these fires are put out quickly and safely,” “Thanks to [North Collier Fire Rescue] for their hard work,” he continued.

“A Tesla submerged by hurricane floodwaters saw its lithium-ion battery corrode and go up in flames, causing firefighters to dump a staggering 1,500 gallons of water on it to put out the blaze,” Dot.LA reported.
