MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A BMW caught fire Wednesday afternoon at Poplar and I-240.

The driver said she was having difficulty steering and that the car was overheating.

She went into a nearby store for help, and the car went up in flames moments later.

The driver has apparently just learned of a recall for the vehicle, in which steering fluid leaks and causes fires.It is not known if that was the cause of this fire.
