Another Chevy Bolt Fire, This Time In Georgia
While General Motors is working with battery supplier LG even more closely than before to find a fix for the Chevy Bolt EV and Bolt EUV spontaneous combustion issue, cars are still going up in flames.
The most recent that we know of is a 2019 Bolt that caught fire in a garage in Cherokee County, Georgia, and if firefighters didn’t show up on the scene as quickly as they did, it would have spread to another vehicle and the garage itself.
Luckily, nobody was injured and additional damage was minimal, even if the vehicle was not supposed to be parked indoors.
This Bolt owner was either unaware of or just ignored GM’s recommendation to keep the vehicle outside overnight, in order to minimize additional damage caused by a possible fire.
This particular Bolt was parked alongside a 2017 Ram pickup, which according to the Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services, had some smoke-related damage.
