Approximately 16 of the $100,000+ Fisker Karma extended-range luxury hybrids were parked in Port Newark, New Jersey last night when water from Hurricane Sandy’s storm surge apparently breached the port and submerged the vehicles. As Jalopnik has exclusively learned, the cars then caught fire…

Really, they don’t know why Lithium Ion batteries caught fire when submerged in water?  I’m pretty sure I remember from 10th grade high school chemistry that Lithium + Water = Fire, assuming the quantity of Lithium is great enough.
