A Tesla Model X caught fire after backing down a boat ramp and becoming fully submerged in the water. The car continued to burn while underwater.

The video above shows the Model X burning. It's the "on-the-scene" video from the actual day of the event.

The story, some of which we can't fully confirm, reportedly is that the Model X was backing jet skis (or maybe a boat) down the boat ramp when some malfunction occurred.

The malfunction could possibly have been caused by water intrusion or perhaps striking some underwater object.

There's even a chance that the battery had been previously damaged, which allowed water to get inside as soon as the vehicle backed far enough down the boat ramp.

Hollywood Fire Rescue of Hollywood, Florida left the vehicle in the water to contain the fire and prevent any potential injuries that could have occurred by attempting to remove the Tesla from the water.
