Tesla fire in France was because of a bad connection

Tesla says France fire caused by badly tightened connection.
PARIS — Tesla says that a fire in one of its electric cars in France broke
out because an electrical connection had not been tightened properly.
The company said in a statement to The Associated Press Wednesday that
"usually, these electrical connections are installed by a robot, but for
this car this connection was installed manually."
The three people aboard the Model S sedan escaped unharmed when it caught
fire during a promotional tour last month in the resort city of Biarritz.
Tesla said it was the only time such an incident had occurred. It did not
elaborate on how the loose connection sparked a fire.
The U.S. government investigated Tesla in 2013 after two fires in Model S
sedans, but closed the investigation after Tesla made changes to the cars.
