quote: It's the third fire in a Model S in the past five weeks and similar to one in early October in Kent, Wash. In that fire, a driver hit road debris that pierced a shield and the battery pack, causing a fire. The other blaze happened in Mexico after the driver ran over a roundabout and crashed into a concrete wall and a tree at a high speed.
