Fires presumed to have started in e-scooter batteries lead to deaths and multiple damage in France. Experts in France (ONSE) indicate that 20 – 35% of home fires have as principle cause electrical faults. Fires causes by e-bikes, e-scooters and other e-mobility devices are increasing, as consumers bring these into their homes to charge, not the garage. E-device fires cited include La-Chapelle-sur-Dun, Puteaux, and Ingré, Le Loiret.
