Those new hoverboards aren’t the only things catching fire. Over in Norway, a Tesla Model S owner plugged their car into a Supercharger station and walked away, only to have the car catch fire at some point and burn to the ground. Nobody was hurt, thankfully, but firefighters had to use a special chemical foam to put out the lithium batteries.

The exact cause of the fire is unknown, but Tesla is investigating and promises to share its findings with the public. The Supercharger station was apparently a temporary one, but it’s unknown if that had anything to do with the fire.

This isn’t the first time that Tesla’s cars have caught fire, and it’s not the first time it’s happened during charging, either. In the past, Tesla has denied that the charging process has anything to do with it, but it needs to be looked into all the same. This is considerably more dangerous than a hands-free segway catching fire.
