The electric car was completely destroyed by fire after its owner connected the Tesla Model S to the Supercharger charging station in Antwerp, Belgium.

Details do not disclose. It is known that the car owner parked at the local Novotel hotel, hooked up the sedan to recharge the batteries, and briefly withdrew. When he returned, both the Tesla Model S and the charging station were already enveloped in flames.

Photos taken at the scene show that the car has completely lost its roof, and the salon has melted. Firefighters were able to cope with a fire, but at night the Model S was placed in a pool of water so that the battery would not catch fire again. However, in any case, the electric car was not subject to recovery.

It should be noted that in the past few months, Tesla cars suffer from fires for an unknown reason. So, in April, the Model S burned in a parking lot in Shanghai. Another incident happened to Model S in San Francisco, and last month a Tesla car burned out in Hong Kong.

Tesla can not yet name the cause of the fire, however, it released an update in which it adjusted the settings for controlling the charging and temperature of the battery. The update for Model S and Model X is designed to “protect the battery and extend its service life.”
