Norwegian authorities are investigating the cause of a fire that gutted an electric Tesla car at a charging station.
Norwegian broadcaster NRK says the Tesla Model S was being charged Friday in the town of Gjerstad in southern Norway when it went up in flames.
Police spokesman Jon Kvitne told news agency NTB that investigators would analyze both the charred wreck and the charging station to try to find out what happened.
In a statement cited by NRK, Tesla said it would investigate the incident and that it was safe to use its charging stations in Norway.
