A fire on the roof of the Tesla Fremont factory has been reported this morning. The Fremont fire department already reported that it has been extinguished.
It’s not the first instance of a fire at the Fremont plant. Last year, a crane knock down a power line and led to a fire, which was quickly contained.
As for today’s incident, the fire department confirmed that the fire started in the HVAC system on the roof of the factory and it remained contained to the system.
The firefighters turned the scene over to investigators.

There are fires all day everyday. Why is it so important to write an article about a fire in Tesla’s HVAC System at the Freemont Factory. Why is this news worthy. Does it affect Tesla’s valuation or their ability to produce quality cars, I don’t think so. These are just a waste of time brought on by someone who only wants to resport bad things about Tesla. Get a life.
“brought on by someone who only wants to resport bad things about Tesla”. Right. You appear to be new here.
Then why report it ?
What sense does it make. Who’s interested? And yes I am aware I spelled report wrong but there was no way to edit it after
Mitchell. Please take a look around here. We simply report every single thing about Tesla and most of the EV industry. That’s what our readers want.
To know about a fire in the HVAC system on the roof, really?
Love the video and no I’m not new to this place nor Tesla. I’ve been following them for 10 years when my Nephew went to work for them.
Typically your articles are of a very interesting nature. I just didn’t see how this fit in.
In retrospect I do admit that most your articles are of an informative and positive nature
But you dont have to read it. We report on everything Tesla related and this happened. There will be reports of fire at the Fremont plant and some of our readers will want to know what happened. HVAC fire or not. If you dont want to read it. We are not asking you to…
Yes, thanks Fred 🙂 great blog.
Chiming in as someone who cares and read the article. Now go away before you hurt yourself.
I know I’m not the majority but I’m very interested in everything related to Tesla. I read this article about the fire willingly. I admit it wasn’t the most passionate one but I was curious about it.
