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

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received two reports of fires in the 2011 model year Chevrolet Cruze, which is manufactured in Lordstown. In both cases, the fires began while the cars were moving and destroyed the vehicles.

General Motors Co. spokesman Alan Adler says the company knows of no deaths or injuries related to the issue. GM is cooperating with the investigation.

The NHTSA has also received eight reports of fires in 2010 model year Jeep Wranglers. Most began when the vehicles were moving.

Chrysler Group spokesman Nick Cappa says the company knows of no accidents or injuries related to the issue. Chrysler is cooperating with the investigation.

NHTSA investigations can lead to vehicle recalls.

I retired from Lordstown in 2004 and my son still works there. We purchased our 2011 Cruze about 9 months ago for my wife. She trader her Cobalt in on it. She loves it, gets 37/38 mpg with it. What a great car.
