A massive inferno broke out in Delhi’s Jamia Nagar electric vehicle parking station. A total of seven fire tenders reached the spot to douse the raging fire. Delhi Fire Service said that the situation is under control now.

The authorities are yet to conclude the reason for the fire. However, it could have happened because of a short circuit. As per reports, nearly 100 vehicles parked caught fire in the accident. But no one got injured.

As many as 30 new e-rickshaws, 50 old e-rickshaws, 10 private cars, 2 scooters and a motorcycle were gutted due to the fire spreading through the parking lot. The Delhi Fire Department received the call at 5 AM. The tenders reached the spot to douse the fire but not before it spread to char many other vehicles parked.

Electric vehicle charging stations use high-voltage electricity. These chargers are mostly high-capacity DC current chargers that use an astonishing amount of power through a complicated system. Even though there are many fail-safe systems like fuse boxes to cut the supply of the power automatically, sometimes the system does not work. As the fire tenders have mentioned that short-circuit is the reason for the fire to start, it might have happened very quickly.


This is not an electric vehicle-related fire. With the rising popularity of electric vehicles, we are ought to see more charging stations around our neighbourhood in the future. Stricter guidelines may prevent such fires in the future.

There are several hazards in the fuel pumps as well. We have seen several gruesome accidents in the fuel pumps and it is over the years that regulations have made them safer. Electric Vehicle charging stations are likely to take the same route. Source
