    I wonder if Fremont plant kept some old infrastructure from NUMMI. It is too early for new installations to start catching fires.

    A LOT of NUMMI infrastructure was retained; that deal is what made Tesla possible!

    I was going to say... The Tesla plant IS the NUMMI infrastructure.

    But there's not supposed to be archaic fire and smoke there. Shouldn't it have been a battery only fire? LOL!

    I was going to make a joke about internal combustion, but alas, looks like it was on the roof.
