Mass ignitions of electric cars after Hurricane Ian


Due to Hurricane Ian in Florida, you can now see a large number of disconnected electric vehicles, some of which spontaneously ignited. The resulting fires are very difficult to extinguish.

Jimmy Patronis, Florida State Fire Marshal, tweeted:

“A huge number of electric vehicles have been disabled by Yen. When these batteries rust, fires start. This is a new challenge that our firefighters have not yet faced. At least on this scale."
