BROOKLYN, Illinois — A Tesla caught fire Monday morning on Route 3 in Brooklyn, Illinois.
The call came around 4:30 a.m. Police found a man and woman near the scene of the crime on Route 3 near the Dawg Pound Gentlemen’s Club. The woman told police the man bought the car within the past week.
It is not yet known how the car caught fire. Earlier this month, Tesla recalled 130,000 vehicles across its US lineup because touchscreens can overheat and fail.
FOX 2’s Nissan Rogue Runner reporter Mike Border was on hand. FOX 2 will continue to update this story with more information as it becomes available.
