According to Aisha Knowles, Fremont Fire Department’s spokeswoman, the fire took place in a part of the factory that was under construction.
“The deep-seated fire was contained to a vehicle manufacturing stamping machine”, said Knowles while adding, that the fire was caused by hydraulic fluid coming in contact with molten aluminum.
The fire was put down after Fremont’s firefighters coordinated with the Tesla fire response team.
It is not immediately known whether production has been affected. Tesla did not respond to requests for comments.
