A fire broke out at the Tesla factory in Fremont, California, yesterday afternoon around 17 p.m. Firefighters arrived at the scene and put it out in a few hours. There are no injuries.

The Fremont Fire Department said it is investigating the cause of the fire.

The Fremont plant is one of the largest electric vehicle manufacturers in California.

The fire came shortly after a wave of layoffs. Tesla recently laid off 600 workers, 164 of whom were from the Fremont factory. Among them were two directors of environmental protection (EHS).

This is not the first fire in this factory. Between 2014 and 2018, several fires were recorded, as well as in 2019 and 2021, reports CNNBS.
