A Tesla car “spontaneously” burst into flames on a California freeway over the weekend and firefighters used thousands of gallons of water to put it out.

According to the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District, the car’s battery caught fire on Saturday along Highway 50.

No one was injured, authorities said.

The department tweeted “nothing unusual” took place before the Tesla Model S became “engulfed in flames,” but the agency said the car’s battery cells “continued to combust” while the fire was being extinguished.

“Crews used jacks to access the underside to extinguish and cool the battery,” the department tweeted.
