The government is investigating reports of engine fires in the Jeep Wrangler and Chevrolet Cruze.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received eight reports of fires in 2010 model-year Jeep Wranglers and two reports of fires in 2011 Cruze models, according to the Associated Press. Most of the fires began when the vehicles were moving, NHTSA said.
