Today is Tuesday, October 13, 2020, and I've been reading on-line national news (ABC is one example) about Bolts catching fire while parked or stored. The fires apparently have all occurred in the lithium battery pack below the seats. The articles say GM is investigating the three incidents and will have a report soon. Out of the 87,000 Bolts sold from 2016 through 2020, three fires is pretty low. Battery fires have also occurred in Teslas. To be safe, we installed a new smoke/fire alarm in our garage today.
