Polaris is recalling more of its vehicles, this time 43,000 off-roaders that are at risk of catching fire.

The Minnesota-based company recalled 133,000 vehicles just two months ago after 160 reports that they caught fire while being driven, leading to dozens of people being burned and one killed.

On Wednesday, Polaris announced a new recall via the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which affects 43,000 Ranger 570 side-by-side recreational off-road vehicles.

It follows seven reports of the Ranger 570s overheating and catching on fire. This time though, no injuries were reported.

The company said the vehicles "can overheat during heavy engine loading, slow-speed intermittent use and/or high outdoor temperatures and catch fire."

The recall affects the 2015 and 2016 models sold between August 2014 and June 2016 for between $10,000 and $12,500.

Here's a list of the affected vehicles:

Anyone who owns one of the vehicles should stop using it immediately and call Polaris to set up a free repair.

As well as the April recall, Polaris also pulled back 6,930 ATVs and snowmobiles this past December because of fire and crash risks, and 53,000 ATVs last October because of fire risks.
