A Tesla Model S has been completely destroyed by massive fire on a Supercharger charging station in Norway.

As nrk.no reports, the accident occurred on a station in Kristiansand, Norway, about 200 miles southwest of capital Oslo. According to our source, the owner of the all-electric sedan from California parked his vehicle, plugged it and left it charging its batteries. Shortly after, it caught fire and was destroyed to an unrecognizable level, as you can see in the video below.

Local firefighters decided to use foam to douse the electric car due to the risk of possible chemical reactions between water and the car’s lithium ion batteries.

The automaker released a statement, announcing that “nobody was harmed” and the company is currently making a “full investigation” and will share the findings “as soon as possible.”

Currently, the Tesla Model S is one of the best-selling models in Norway, which helped the EV manufacturer to achieve its annual goal of selling more than 50,000 cars in 2015 with total sales of 50,580 cars. In the last quarter of the year Tesla managed to deliver 17,192 Model S vehicles.
