Fire breaks out at Okinawa dealership
The tragic incident happened on Friday (June 24) morning. Okinawa Autotech blames it on an electric short circuit. However, this is not the first time that an Okinawa dealership has been burnt to ashes. In April this year, a fire broke out at an Okinawa EV dealership in Tamil Nadu. However, the cause of the fire is said to be a short circuit inside the outlet. According to reports, Okinawa said about the Mangalore incident, “The unfortunate incident of fire broke out in one of our showrooms in Mangalore. The trader said that the fire was caused by an electrical short circuit. We are in touch with the dealership and providing all necessary assistance.
The statement further said that Okinawa Autotech takes full care of safety. “We want to ensure that the highest standards of safety are maintained at our dealerships across the country,” the statement said. It may be mentioned that there were no casualties in both the Mangalore incident and the earlier incident in Tamil Nadu.
