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.
