Four vehicles burnt after fire erupts from electric car charging at station in China

A huge fire broke out as an electric car was plugged into a charging station in southern China, burning three other vehicles.

In the CCTV video, filmed in the city of Dongguan in Guangdong Province on May 8, smoke and a ball of fire suddenly emerge from an electric car when it was charging.

Because of the winds, the fire spread to the vehicles next to the electric car, causing them to be burnt.
