Firefighters quickly arrived at the scene of an accident, but it was not so easy to cope with a strong fire – they had to call for help. In total, five fire trucks were involved in the elimination of the fire.

The Tesla Model S was extinguished for several hours. An electric car was flooded with 45 tons of water, despite the fact that, on average, less than 2 tons are required to extinguish gasoline cars. The only thing left of the car was a burnt-out frame – it was sent for recycling.
