Fisker says battery is not to blame in hybrid car fire



A Fisker Karma caught fire in Northern California, but don't blame the battery pack of the hybrid car, the automaker said today.
Fisker put out a statement saying it and independent investigators it has hired are trying to figure out the cause of the fire that burned up the left-front side of a Karma Friday in Woodside, Calif.
Jalopnik.com, which broke the story, provided us with a picture of the extensive damage. Matt Hardigree's story says the fire initially broke out when the owner went to get groceries.
Fisker says the cause hasn't been pinpointed, but it appears to be from outside the engine compartment. So it didn't involve the car's lithium-ion battery pack, other new technology features or the exhaust for the car's small gasoline engine. Jalopnik says the car's exhaust comes from the sides of the car, not the rear.
Fisker says there are now more than 1,000 Karmas on the road with a total of more than 2 million miles on them.
