Official statement from Tesla Motors, on what happened today:
“There was a failure in a low pressure aluminum casting press. Three employees were injured by hot metal from that press. We are making sure that they receive the best possible care.”
It isn’t certain if there was a fire at all, though there were many reports of a fire based on the fire trucks on the scene (which were likely precautionary).
