Our local fire department had to let a Tesla burn to the ground last summer as they also don't have the proper gear and training for the lithium battery fires.
We had an extrication from one yesteerday.... a few of us went to a training last year and put together a book on the different EV vehicles. Where to cut and where note to cut and any fire.

What is your experience on putting out an EV fire?
A whole lot of water and foam. Had to request a tanker also. Full SCBA and protect anyone down wind due to the toxic fumes the batteries will give off. If the Lithium Ion battery catches fire, and you get it put out. It can reignite on its own.
