The fires appear to start in the power window switch on the door. Six fires have been reported to the agency, but NHTSA has no reports of anyone being hurt. The agency said it started the investigation on Monday.

Toyota said it is cooperating with NHTSA in the investigation. Customers with concerns should call Toyota at 800-331-4331.

Most of the six fires were minor with damage limited to the doors, but a Camry was destroyed in one case, according to complaints filed with NHTSA. Several owners reported that they were afraid to drive their vehicles because of the threat of fires.

The Camry is consistently the top-selling car in the United States, and the RAV-4 is a big seller. The probe also includes the Solara.
