Montreal firefighters investigating after electric vehicle blows up in garage

The Montreal fire department is investigating after an electric car, parked inside a residential garage, blew up Friday afternoon.

Section Chief Louise Desrosiers said it happened at around 1:00 p.m. in the garage of a bungalow on Montigny Street in Île-Bizard.

The car was plugged in when it exploded, Desrosiers said. The force of the blast, however, ripped the garage door off.

“It was blown off and landed on the other side of the street,” Desrosiers said.

The owner was inside the home at the time, but Desrosiers said no one was injured. The garage was heavily damaged and at risk of collapsing, according to Desrosiers.

The house adjoining the garage, as well as a neighbouring home, were evacuated.

The residents will only be allowed back in pending the results of a structural anyalysis... more: https://globalnews.ca/news/5689903/electric-car-blows-up-montreal/

1. Electric vehicles need to be outlawed immediately.

They are a danger.

End of story.

3. Grow up and try to look at the whole picture

Battery fanatics need to be reminded that EVERY FUEL HAS IT'S dangers and Li-Ion batteries are included.

There will be more battery fires/explosions and there will be more hydrogen explosions.

Because people make mistakes. Then, most of them learn.

It will take more than just batteries (that explode sometimes) to get the world off of fossil fuels.

It's that simple, but many people can't seem to understand this. And so, just like with the fake "Righty/Lefty" divide, there's a Battery/Hydrogen fake division.

4. Correct me if i'm wrong but there are a lot more battery powered cars than hydrogen powered ones.

I couldn't care less if there are hydrogen powered cars as long as their safe, aren't slow as shit and affordable as gas powered cars and last but not least i'm not forced to buy one or subsidize them
