(AP) U.S. auto safety regulators have decided not to open a formal investigation into the Oct. 2 fire that damaged a Tesla electric car near Seattle.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there's no indication at this time that the fire was caused by a safety defect.


The agency says it reviewed all available data and will continue to check consumer complaints and other information.


The Tesla Model S hit road debris on a freeway in Kent, Washington. The debris punctured a shield and the battery, touching off a fire that engulfed the front of the car.


The driver escaped without injury and firefighters put out the flames.
