Earlier this month, a Tesla parked in a Toronto garage caught fire. This does not seem to be charger related, as the Model S was not plugged in to a charger at the time. While Tesla fires have been in the news lately, this one was unique in that there was no collision involved.

Tesla said it has definitively determined that the Toronto fire did not originate in the battery, the charging system, the adapter or the electrical receptacle, noting that these components were untouched by the fire.

    Maybe the fire was *in front of the car*, which is to say, *in the garage in front of the car*. I still haven't seen any picture that show the car had any fire damage at all. Some pictures of a burnt out front end were actually from the car that struck the trailer hitch.

    If you look at stories with recent updates, they all say that the Tesla was probably not the cause of the fire at all, so here's a revised headline:
    "Tesla Model S caught in garage fire"

    ... sorry about the typos
