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.

    It depends on what caused the fire, that'll determine if it's news or not.

    Unless it was a robot, I can't imagine what could make it technology news. The only way this is news is eco-econo. My hope is that neither of these topics has a place on /this/ site - unless it has a clear bearing on tech.
