Luton airport car park destroyed by fire

A fire starting in a diesel-engine car closed Luton airport, UK, for over 12 hours, destroyed 1400 cars as well as the building. The fire in the Terminal 2 car park, 10th October, has been indicated by fire services to have started with a fault in a diesel-engine car, but rumours on social media state that it started in an electric car (e.g. here). Over 1 200 cars were damaged or destroyed and the car park building will have to be completely demolished.
