Investigators believe the hybrid vehicle caused the fire in Houston.

A recent fire at a home in the Houston, Texas area started in the garage and is being blamed on a Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid vehicle that was in the garage. Apparently, the vehicle is only a month old and had just been driven and parked when the blaze erupted. Local fire investigators are saying that it appears the blaze started with the Karma.

The official cause of the fire hasn't been announced yet, but the blaze pattern reportedly is similar to what is seen in a golf cart fire. The fire investigators in the area see numerous golf cart fires and are familiar with the signs. The Karma has lithium-ion battery packs, which is a technology known to overheat from damage or defect leading to possible fire.
