The fire at the American Tesla plant in Fremont has been extinguished. No casualties were reported.
A fire at Tesla’s electric car manufacturer’s factory in Fremont, California was brought under control on Thursday evening, Reuters reported, citing a fire department’s press office. No casualties were reported in the fire.
According to Aisha Knowles, spokesman for the Fremont Fire Department, the fire occurred in a part of the factory under construction.
“A deep fire was localized in a stamping shop that makes cars,” she added.
According to the spokesman, the fire was triggered by contact of the hydraulic fluid with molten aluminum. Fremont firefighters coordinated with the Tesla Fire Department. Two state fire engines and one truck remained on site to monitor the situation, the spokesman said.
Local TV channel KTVU Fox 2 previously tweeted a video of smoke rising from the factory.
It wasn’t immediately clear if this had an impact on production. Tesla did not respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
