Flooded Electric Vehicles Spontaneously Catch On Fire In Florida After Hurricane

Jimmy Patronis, Florida’s chief financial officer and fire marshal, said that “there’s a ton of EVs disabled from Ian. As those batteries corrode, fires start.”

Patronis posted on Thursday that after Hurricane Ian made landfall last week and devastated parts of his state, a number of electric vehicles (EVs) were stranded, batteries were waterlogged, and others burst into flames spontaneously.

He said, “that’s a new challenge that our firefighters haven’t faced before. At least on this kind of scale.”

“It takes special training and understanding of EVs to ensure these fires are put out quickly and safely,” he continued in another tweet. “Thanks to [North Collier Fire Rescue] for their hard work.”

Patronis shared a video of firefighters in Naples spraying hundreds of litres of water on a smoldering Tesla EV battery in a municipal street.

No exact data exists regarding the number of EVs that were damaged or caught fire as a result of the extensive flooding last week. But it is becoming clear that the state’s fire departments are ill-prepared to deal with lithium battery fires.

Greenies ignore the environmental consequences of EV accidents and fires that are related to the Biden administration’s desire to electrify road vehicles in an effort to purportedly save the globe from man-made carbon emissions.
