Ford recalling 2013 Escape SUVs, reports of fires in the engine

(WTVM) - Ford has issued a recall on their 2013 Escape SUVs following reports of their engines catching fire.

More than 11,000 Escapes in the U.S. and Canada are being recalled because the fuel lines can crack and leak.

The recall only affects models with 1.6 liter four cylinder engines that were built from early April through July 11 of this year.

The company says it has three reports of fires, two at the factory and one while a customer was driving.
