Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 100,000 hybrid vehicles and expanding an existing recall of traditional SUVs over worries that the automobiles could catch fire.

The new effort involves Escapes, Mavericks and Lincoln Corsairs from model years 2020 through 2022, Ford said Friday. While there are no accidents or injuries associated with the issue behind the latest recall, the company said the vehicles are at risk of igniting under the hoods due to a leak of engine oil or fuel vapor.
