Swedish truck-and-bus maker Volvo AB said today it would recall 125,000 trucks in North America because of a fire hazard.

Tommy Kohle, a spokesman for the Goteborg-based company, said it would recall the Volvo VN, Volvo VHD and Volvo VT models constructed from 2003 to the present.

The trucks have been sold in the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

Kohle says there's a problem in the main switch in the lighting system which can lead to an overheating in the component.

The company has received reports about the problem, Kohle said, but it was not clear whether it had resulted in any serious incidents.

Kohle said Volvo would fix the problem free of charge.

Volvo has more than 80,000 employees worldwide. It sold its car division to U.S.-based Ford Motor Co. in 1999.
