Hyundai and Kia advised owners of 571,467 SUVs and vans to park outside and away form structures because the vehicles could pose a fire risk, according to recall reports submitted to the U.S. National Highway Safety Administration. 

The Korean car makers said the recalled vehicles could be equipped with a faulty tow hitch assembly that can take on water and experience an electrical short. This can increase the risk of fire, according to the NHTSA reports.

A total of 567,912 Hyundai vehicles and 3,555 Kia vehicles are affected.
