    RECALL: 2 million 2015-2018 Ford trucks recalled due to reported seatbelt fires

    Some two million Ford F-150 pickup trucks are being recalled by the company after more than 20 reports of smoke or fire coming from the seat belts.

    The recall, which was announced Thursday, applies to certain Regular Cab and SuperCrew Cab vehicles from model years 2015-18.

    The problem, according to the company, is with a part of the driver and front passenger seat belts called a pretensioner. The pretensioner is a component attached to the base of a seatbelt clip. During a crash, it automatically forces the clip down, which is meant to protect the occupant by pulling them into the seat. Sometimes, this piece involves explosives.
    There are more than 20 reports of smoke or fire coming from the seat belts in certain Ford F-150 models. There are at least three reports of cars "totally destroyed" by fire.
