Firefighters responded to Tesla’s Fremont, Calif., facility Thursday evening, where smoke could be seen billowing out of an open rooftop at the north side of the plant.
Around 4:45 p.m. local time authorities suspected the fire may have burned itself out, but firefighters were on scene and monitoring the situation.
A Fremont Fire Department spokesperson told the Oakland Fox affiliate KTVU Fox 2 that the fire there may have broken out in an area of the facility that is currently under construction.
