Guy Martin did a programme on Channel 4.
At about 30 mins in, there is a discussion on battery fires and some examples.

Is it noteworthy that many of the hybrids place fuel tank and battery adjacent to each other? Risk multiplication?

More dangerous than the in-tank electric fuel pump with loose wiring and connectors all submerged in petrol at all times that is standard in most cars today? Seems counter-intuitive but they tell us it's not dangerous. Although, there are 100,000 car fires a year in the UK, most of them petrol cars. They never say exactly what causes them though.
