BMW bursts into flames in North Gyeongsang

A BMW sedan caught fire in Korea on Monday in the latest in a series of similar cases that have sparked a police investigation and the German carmaker’s massive recall in Korea.

The fire broke out in the 520d sedan around 4:49 p.m. as it traveled on an expressway in the city of Mungyeong, North Gyeongsang.

Firefighters put out the blaze and no one was hurt, officials said.

It was the latest of more than 35 similar fires this year.

Police have launched an investigation after a group of BMW owners filed a complaint accusing the carmaker of negligence and other charges.
