Chrysler is recalling about 68,000 Jeep Wranglers in the United States for a problem that can lead to fires in some cases.

The recall affects 2010 Wranglers with automatic transmissions.

The problem is with a skid plate that's located close to the vehicle's catalytic converter that can trap debris.

Catalytic converters get extremely hot, and that heat can ignite the debris and cause a fire.

Chrysler has acknowledged at least 14 reports of fires so far.

The company will notify affected Jeep owners as soon as parts become available.
