Tata Altroz Catches Fire in the Middle of Marketplace

In a shocking instance, a Tata Altroz premium hatchback catches fire in the middle of the road. It is a successful and the only hatchback in the country with a 5-star safety rating. People opt for this car because it offers safety, various engine options, modern technology, and stylish design. These qualities make it a formidable competitor to the popular Hyundai i20. However, the Maruti Baleno remains the leader in this segment. Still, people opt for Tata cars for their build quality and safety. For now, let us take a look at the details of this latest case.

Tata Altroz Catches Fire

This post comes from Raftaar 7811 on YouTube. This channel features content around road safety and performance of cars during unfortunate scenarios. The visuals capture the hatchback parked in a marketplace. One can see the smoke coming out of its engine bay. There are tons of people gathered around the car. They are trying vehemently to douse the fire. Since this is a crowded area and the road is narrow, the big fire brigade was not able to arrive on time. Hence, the locals took the matter into their own hands.

In a valiant effort by the onlookers, they are seen carrying small buckets of water to douse the flames. They are partially successful. But the smoke is still there. After a while, a small fire brigade arrives at the scene. That is when things get in control. The video doesn’t talk about the exact reason for this fire. With such ruckus, the entire lane is blocked. However, people are standing dangerously close to the burning car. That could be a health hazard as car parts could fly off and the smoke could carry toxic fumes.

Author’s Note

Since there is no official reason given in the post, we shall attempt to venture a logical guess. In many cases, we have seen people heading to the aftermarket to get accessories installed. These often lack the quality of an OEM and can cause short circuits. It is one of the major reasons for fires in cars. We must take these things seriously. Apart from that, there could be many other reasons for this fire including the availability of a combustible substance near the car or something along those lines. In any case, we can only hope that Tata Motors runs an investigation to reveal the exact reason for this fire. Also, we would urge our readers to be mindful of the fact that installing aftermarket accessories in your cars to save money might prove to be mighty expensive in the long run.
