The recall covers Bronco Sport and Escape SUV models from 2020 to 2023.
All of them have 1.5-liter three-cylinder engines.
The automaker said on Thursday that fires are rare and don’t usually occur with the engine off.
Vehicle owners were not given advice to stop driving.
But Ford said it received 20 fire reports, including three that set fire to nearby structures.
The company also said there were four claims of fire that were noticed less than five minutes after the engines were turned off.
