WASHINGTON, May 26 (Reuters) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Thursday it has asked Tesla Inc for information about a recent 2021 Tesla Model Y fire in Vancouver, British Columbia, in which a driver reported struggling to exit.

The NHTSA told Reuters the agency "is aware of the incident and has reached out to the manufacturer for information."

Electrek posted a video of the incident https://electrek.co/2022/05/23/tesla-model-y-caught-on-fire-break-the-window-to-get-out in which the owner said he received an error notification and then saw smoke. The driver said that to get out he "had to smash the window. ... I kicked through the window because everything stops. The power didn’t work. The door didn’t open. The windows didn't go down."

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by David Shepardson in Washington and Hyunjoo Jin; Editing by Leslie Adler)
