A Tesla Model S caught fire and burned down fully during supercharging at a station in Norway, according to a local media report.

Fortunately, state news agency NRK says no one was injured in the blaze.

The electric vehicle maker has installed supercharging stations in countries where it sold its cars to enable the owners to fast-charge their vehicles.

The report says the owner plugged the car in a station and left it. At some point, the fire began and burned down the vehicle completely.

Reddit's r/teslamotors users believe the particular station was a "temporary" one. They claim this could be the reason why the Tesla electric vehicle caught fire.

Firefighters used special chemical foam to put out the fire on the vehicle packed with lithium batteries.

At the moment, not much is known regarding the real cause of the blaze as Tesla and local authorities still need to carry out investigations. 

"Nobody was harmed," says a Tesla spokesperson to Jalopnik. "We are undergoing a full investigation and will share our findings as soon as possible."

Tesla Sales

Tesla reveals in a statement on Sunday, Dec. 3, that the company managed to deliver 50,580 Model S sedans and Model X sport utility cars last year.

In February, Tesla projected to ship 55,000 cars in 2015. However, it revised its estimate down to 50,000 through 52,000 cars. This means the total number of sold cars is still within the range.

On Sept. 29 last year, Tesla boss Elon Musk handed over the initial six Model X SUVs to customers who had been waiting for three years from the time they made a deposit.

In the last quarter, Tesla delivered 208 Model X vehicles and manufactured 507.

Ben Kallo, an analyst with Robert W. Baird, is convinced this is good news. He rates Tesla's shares as "neutral".

"They hit within their guidance," says Kallo. "The X number is lower than some expectations, but production has picked up nicely."

In the meantime, the company says that its Model X deliveries are "in line with the very early stages" of its production ramp, emphasizing how it is prioritizing quality over other aspects. It also says that during the last week of 2015, it produced around 238 SUVs.

Tesla's shares increased 7.9 percent last year. The shares closed at $240.01 on the last day of 2015.
