    Sacramento fire officials said that it took 6,000 gallons to put out a fire caused by Tesla car batteries that had "spontaneously" burst into flames.

    The official Twitter account for the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District issued a series of tweets documenting the incident near Rancho Cordova in California on Saturday.

    "Crews arrived to a Tesla Model S engulfed in flames, nothing unusual prior. 2 Fire Engines, a water tender, and a ladder truck were requested to assist," the department tweeted with four photographs.

    "Crews used jacks to access the underside to extinguish and cool the battery. Thousands of gallons were used in extinguishment," they added.

    They went on to say that the battery cells continued to combust as firefighters attempted to put out the fire.
