I agree, need to get to the bottom of this one, at least get initial findings/comments that rule things out expeditiously. Incidentally, I wonder if he had a cheapo Chinese "hoverboard" in his trunk that ignited.In some previous Tesla car fires (poor driving, crashes, ruptured battery), the cause was obvious, there was no need to explain anything.
Fires that happen to a car whilst charging are likely to cause fear if root cause is not explained.
There are increasing incidents of hoverboards causing fire whilst charging.
Hoverboard plugged in for 10min causes fire that destroyed family home
Incidents like this may lead to a perception 'charging = fire danger', unless car charging fire is explained.
However, I sure would like to know if there is an actual potential safety issue, as an owner and investor.
