Nearly 90,000 Mini Coopers are being recalled in the U.S. by parent company BMW following reports that the cars can catch fire , even after being parked and turned off.

Turbocharged models of the Mini Cooper, Cooper S and Clubman sold between March 2006 and January 2011 are affected.

The Detroit News reports that the recall came after 81 water pump failures were reported and a handful of engine fires worldwide since 2009.

If the pump fails, a circuit board can overheat and catch fire.

The BBC says the worldwide total of affected Minis is near 235,000.

Owners should be contacted in the coming weeks with information on how to get their car fixed.
