German journalists shared a unique video of extinguishing an electric car Opel.

The full video was posted on the Emergency-Report . The fire took place in the city of Langenfeld in Germany.

According to the report, the Opel Ampera-e (European version of the Chevrolet Bolt EV) was plugged into a charger. For an unknown reason, an electric car caught fire.

The fire brigade arrived at the scene at 1 am and started extinguishing the car. Despite all efforts, the fire did not subside and after a while spread to the back of the car, where the battery is located.

Interestingly, despite what was happening, the car’s dashboard was working!

To prevent re-ignition, firefighters moved the electric vehicle into a special container filled with 5,000 liters of water.

The extinguishing mission ended at about 6 am. Thus, the process took 5 hours.
