Reuters reported that, BMW’s South Korean branch apologized over about thirty car fires reported between January and July in the country.

There were no injuries reported.

Chairman of Korea branch, Kim Hyo-joon said at a presser, "For the recent series of fire incidents happened in the country, we sincerely apologize for causing worry and anxiety among people and government authorities."

The German high-end carmaker said in a statement that customers with affected cars would be contacted.
