WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- A huge recall for Ford pickup truck drivers. One million of them are being singled out for faulty gas tanks.

This impacts the car company's best selling F-series pick up trucks. The straps that hold the fuel tank could rust and allow the tank to come loose and drag.

Here are the affected models:

*1997-2003 F-150s

*1997-1999 F-250s

*2002-2003 Lincoln Blackwood trucks

Ford says there have been three reported fires and one injury.

Dealers will fix the problem straps for free.
