Walmart sues Tesla over solar panels that caught fire

Walmart is suing Tesla after seven of the retail giant's stores caught fire from solar panels provided by Elon Musk's company.

"As of November 2018, no fewer than seven Walmart stores had experienced fires due to Tesla's solar system," the company said in its New York lawsuit. "Tesla has also demonstrated an inability or unwillingness to remediate the dangerous conditions documented in its inspection reports," the complaint continues.

Shares of the electric carmaker fell 0.36% in after-hours trading following the news.
