  • Mary Mc Cormack has been married to director Michael Morris since 2003

McCormack said her husband's vehicle was "a normal Tesla" that did not come equipped with "auto pilot or whatever", and said the vehicle company has yet to offer the couple an explanation for the fire. "No accident, out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd", wrote McCormack.

Video of the incident has been shared by United States actress Mary McCormack whose husband was in the electric auto at the time.

At first, Morris was not aware of the flames coming out of the auto.

A spokesperson said: "We offer our support to local authorities and are glad our customer is safe". Other drivers saw the fire and told him to pull over.

Mary McCormack tweeted a video of her husband's Tesla in flames (see clip below).

Video recorded at the scene shows flames shooting from underneath the parked auto.

The company claims that, based on the 300,000 cars they've produced - which have collectively driven over 7.5 billion miles - there are only five incidents of cars catching fire per billion miles traveled.

The Model S autopilot feature, which has caused numerous problems and failures for Tesla, was also ruled out.

Tesla vehicles catching fire were often in the news a few years ago after a series of fires happened in a relatively short period of time.

McCormack had some more info to add, replying to her Twitter followers' questions to explain that it wasn't a self-driving Tesla, just "a normal Tesla".
