The recall affects Honda CR-V crossover models from 2002-2006.  The automaker warning water or other liquids entering through a driver’s open window could overheat or melt the master power switch on the door.  That could start a fire, even if the ignition is off.

Honda received four reports of fires, but no injuries or crashes related to the defect.  Government officials urging consumers park their CR-Vs outside to avoid property damage from a fire until they get the problem fixed.
