Ford (F) has issued a recall for thousands of SUVs after receiving 25 reports of fires that stemmed from the blower motor in the vehicles.

The recall affects over 198,400 2015 to 2017 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs with a blower motor located behind the glove box that could fail and cause an interior fire while the vehicle is running.

Ford said some customers have reported an inoperative fan, burning smell, or smoke from the instrument panel vents while the vehicle is in operation.

According to the defect report, Ford said it has received three reports of fires that were linked to property damage to structures and one report from a customer who claimed to receive injuries to their hands and fingers.

All of the fire reports indicate that the vehicles were running at the time of the incidents, Ford said.

To repair the issue, Ford dealers will replace the front blower motor assembly at no charge to affected vehicle owners. Recall notices are expected to be mailed on Sept. 12.

Questions can be directed to the Ford customer service center at 1-866-436-7332.
Ford said it has not identified the cause of the condition.

As of Thursday premarket hours, shares of Ford were trading at $15.08, down 16 cents, or $1.05.
