A Tesla Inc electric car caught fire in a parking lot in a Hong Kong shopping mall, the Apple Daily newspaper said on Tuesday, but no one was injured in the blaze, whose cause was not immediately known.

The electric car burst into flames 30 minutes after being parked in the city’s San Po Kong district on Sunday, the newspaper said, with three explosions seen on CCTV footage.

Firemen took 45 minutes to douse the fire.

The vehicle was a Tesla Model S 85 KWH dual power version, added the paper, which gave no explanation of what might have caused the blaze.

I didn’t find a video about this car in flames, just some images from Zero Hedge.

This is not the first time that a Tesla car caught fire. In April 21, in a parking lot in Shangai, another model S goes in flames.

Fire in other model S in Los Angels in 2018.

There have been at least 14 instances of Tesla cars catching fire since 2013, most of them after a crash.
