Polaris recalls ATVs due to fire risk

Polaris Industries announced Thursday the recall of certain 2005 and 2006 models of ATVs due to fire risk.

"The ATVs can have defective Electronic Control Modules (ECM) that overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to riders," the company said on its Web site.

The recall is an expansion of a previous recall in June 2005. The company reported it has received 372 additional reports of smoking and/or melted ECMs on the affected ATVs, and 20 reports of fires, nine of which involved property damage beyond the ATV. No injuries have been reported, the company said.
