We is hot on the trail of #1.
Leaf other cars behind!
Does anyone know if all fires occurred while plugged in? Per the manual, I set my recharge to 90%.
But, did the battery fire start before or after the propane tank exploded?
Per the manual what? Are you saying the owner's manual instructs you to charge to 90%?
Well would you look at that, apparently it not just Teslas and Konas that can cook off in garages https://electrek.co/2020/02/17/pors...v090QLFCkDBUo6YRWi_xWTypiCDkug_GiScLBw25CQzto
OK, EVSE inside, car stays out during overnight charge. It's why the cable is 20'. Small price for peace of mind.
Anyone find results of investigations yet?

To be fair, it's too early to know the cause of the fire. It's entirely possible it wasn't the car. If the EV charger was recently installed, then it's probably more likely it was an improperly installed EV charger that started the fire than a battery fire that started in the car.
BEV owners would do well to pay a licensed electrician to check out the house wiring circuit and make sure the charger is installed correctly and safely. And note that not all people hiring out as electricians are licensed, so do ask.
