"We removed the car from the garage. A Tesla engineer removed the fuse from the battery pack prior to transport, indicating that would make the car safe for transport. We brought it here to Monroeville, arrived around 3:30 in the afternoon, and about 6:20, the car spontaneously caught fire, forensic engineer David Bizzak said."

Apparently it didn't want to be a car.

Looks like it had a complete meltdown.

I think the dogs had something to do with that, but they're not talking.

Ah yes; seems like it experienced the old "HCF" bug.

A friend of mine had a Ford pickup do similar parked in his driveway about ten years ago.  Nothing like the smell of BBQ'd pickup.

Either that or the entrance to Elon's time-space matrix closed at just that point. Should've got a Delorean, they're a proven time-traveler for over thirty years.
