Social media users have described it as a “significant fire”

It comes as Telsa founder Elon Musk said cars will have a “dog mode” to protect pet pooches from overheating.

The billionaire entrepreneur announced that the new programme would be rolled out to his fleet of Model 3 electric vehicles next week.

It will be able to detect when a pet is locked inside the car – and keep the temperature at a safe level.

There will also likely be a display or some form of communication to inform passers-by that the dog is safe.

The new update comes after the tech guru was inundated with tweets from customers.

Telsa was founded on July 1, 2003 in San Carlos, California.
