U.S. safety regulators say owners of some BMW 5-and 6-Series cars should park them outside until a battery cable
problem can be fixed.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Thursday said BMW is recalling more than 367,000 of the cars in the U.S. from the 2004 to 2010 model years. A battery cable can loosen in the trunk and overheat, causing a fire.

A BMW spokesman says the company knows of only one fire in the U.S. No one was hurt. Safety regulators say in an extreme case, overheating could lead to a smoldering fire in the trunk floor mat. BMW will inspect and tighten a cable connector. The recall starts in April.

The company announced the recall on Monday in Germany. It affects 1.3 million cars worldwide.
