U.S. auto safety regulators have urged about 50,000 owners of General Motors’ electric Chevrolet Bolt vehicles that were recalled in 2020 to park outside and away from homes after charging due to the fire risks.

Earlier on Wednesday, General Motors made the same recommendation and added owners should not leave vehicles charging overnight. The recommendation was made after the automaker said it was investigating reports of two latest fires in vehicles that were recalled in November over fire risks.

The 50,000 U.S. Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles, from the 2017-2019 model years. were recalled for the possibility of an unattended fire.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) started an investigation in October into the Bolt fires, the agency noted Wednesday and continues to review the information received and is looking into these recent fires.

NHTSA said owners should park outside indefinitely even if they have had the software update.
