The auto, driven by British TV director Michael Morris, went up in flames while he was caught in traffic on Santa Monica Boulevard, a report by the BBC explains. Fortunately, a couple flagged her husband down and asked him to pull over and there were no injuries. "And thank god my three little girls weren't in the vehicle with him", wrote McCormack, who has had leading roles in series including Murder One and The West Wing.

Tesla said it would investigate the incident, calling it "an extraordinarily unusual occurrence". Tesla says that based on the size of its fleet and the number of miles it has traveled, a Tesla vehicle is at least 10 times less likely to experience a fire than a gas auto. "Our initial investigation shows that the cabin of the vehicle was totally unaffected by the fire due to our battery architecture, which is created to protect the cabin in the very rare event that a battery fire occurs". "There's obviously been some issues with lithium ion batteries in the past, particularly around cellphones, but electric vehicle batteries are very different". In a statement to ABC News, a Tesla spokesperson wrote, "We offer our support to local authorities and are glad our customer is safe".

Firefighters were called in and the fire was soon extinguished. Tesla and other electric vehicle manufacturers are training first responders on how to deal with crashes and fires involving electric cars. She said it happened "out of the blue" and that it wasn't the result of an accident. "It was a normal Tesla", tweeted McCormack.
