April 19, 2019—A Tesla Model X that caught fire in February reportedly caught fire a second time. According to CBS Pittsburgh, a Tesla Model X in Monroeville, Pa., ignited while at auto repair shop, Smeltz Auto Service.

“We removed the car from the garage," forensic engineer David Bizzak said to CBS Pittsburgh. "A Tesla engineer removed the fuse from the battery pack prior to transport, indicating that would make the car safe for transport. We brought it here to Monroeville, arrived around 3:30 in the afternoon, and about 6:20, the car spontaneously caught fire."

The vehicle fire lasted four hours, according to CBS Pittsburgh.
