German luxury automaker BMW is recalling 324,000 diesel vehicles in Europe to repair a technical defect that has caused engine fires in South Korea, German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) stated.

A defective exhaust gas recirculation module in BMW diesel vehicles has resulted in 27 engine fires in South Korea this year, pushing the company to recall 106,000 vehicles there and apologize for the incidents.

BMW is now broadening the recall to Europe, with 96,300 vehicles impacted in Germany, to replace the module if the fault is confirmed, FAZ stated on Tuesday, mentioning BMW.

BMW officials were not reachable for comment at the moment.
