Chinese tech giant Huawei said on Tuesday that after analyzing data, all the cars displayed in a Huawei mobile phone store in Ordos, North China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, did not appear any abnormality, before the shop caught fire on Monday.

"We are cooperating with police to carry out the investigation, and the police will release the final results," Huawei said.

On Tuesday, a video taken by netizens in the city showed that a Huawei cell phone store caught fire, and the AITO M5 displayed in the store was burned to a frame.

According to the information by police, two people died in the fire due to asphyxiation from carbon monoxide poisoning.

AITO also said that the vehicle has not been found abnormal and the cause of the fire will be determined by the probe. It is now cooperating with police in the investigation.

The AITO M5 is the first electric vehicle installed with Huawei's HarmonyOS and made by Chinese carmaker SERES. Now it is sold through Huawei's offline stores.
