I am pretty suire it will not, the recall is listed for a few months of Escape production in 2012. The same engine is used in the Fusion, and that is not listed for the recall.

OK but if you read the full article it mentions that one Fusion also had an engine fire. Hopefully the problem was fixed with the development of the Fiesta ST.

The Ford release says the following;
"Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013 Escape vehicles manufactured from October 5, 2011, through July 11, 2012, and equipped with a 1.6L engine subject to prior safety recall NHTSA 12V-336. In some cases, the engine compartment fuel line may have been installed incorrectly when repaired under the prior recall. The misinstalled fuel line could chafe and eventually leak fuel"

This was from Autoblog earlier today. Nothing listed about the Fusion and says the recall is for Escapes that were recalled and fixed incorrectly.

And this about heads cracking but again only on the Escape they must have some weird plumbing in that Vehicle ...
The latest announcement actually combines two separate recalls. One involves more than 161,000 Ford Escapes sold around the world during the 2013 model year. Only vehicles equipped with the maker’s 1.6-liter engine are affected. Ford says the cylinder heads in those engines can overheat and crack, resulting in oil leaks.
