Teslas catching fire have made recent headlines, but one supposed incident has now been caught on video, and the automaker is investigating. Reuters reports the company has sent a team to China to check out an explosion that allegedly took place in a Shanghai parking garage, an incident seen in footage that's been circulating on Chinese social media. In the video seemingly shot on Sunday, a parked Model S is shown with smoke coming out of it, followed seconds later by a blast, then flames. A handful of other cars nearby were also apparently destroyed.
"After learning about the incident in Shanghai, we dispatched a team to the scene last night as soon as possible," Tesla said in a statement, via Jalopnik. "We are actively liaising with the relevant departments and cooperating with the verification of the situation. According to the current information, there [were] no casualties." Reuters notes that more than a dozen Tesla vehicles have caught on fire since 2013, though mostly after crashes. (Read more Tesla stories.)
