The difficulty in correctly identifying the burned cars shows how severe the blaze was. The only parts left on the Model 3 are those made of steel, including the seat frames. The T-ROC is only recognizable due to its hood and part of the bumper. The Volkswagen crossover's right front tire vanished – and it is pretty big.
The Barcelona firefighters stated they had to send three fire engines, one ambulance, one turntable ladder truck, two command vehicles, and a ventilation truck. Unfortunately, they did not share how much time they spent extinguishing the fire.
According to Coche Global, the fire started in the battery pack and reignited at least once, making the firefighters’ work even more difficult. People who left their cars in the same underground car park were not allowed to go there after the blaze was killed. Apparently, some vehicles close to where the Model 3 was parked were also damaged due to the extreme heat the blazes generated.
It is not clear what caused the fire or if anyone apart from insurance companies will investigate. Tesla does not talk to the press, and it will remain silent unless Spanish government authorities demand some answers. We’ll try to follow how this story will unfold.
