FLAT ROCK, Mich. (AP) — A fire burned part of a Ford Motor Co. plant in southeastern Michigan, prompting an evacuation of part of the facility.
No injuries were reported after the Tuesday evening fire at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, which makes the Mustang.
Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker tells The Detroit News a corner of the building caught fire and employees in that area were quickly evacuated. The fire was soon put out and she says it didn't halt work in other areas of the plant.
Felker says the cause was under investigation. Flat Rock police Lt. Kevin Murphy tells the Detroit Free Press the fire started in racks outside. Fire Chief William Vack tells the Monroe News the fire was near truck docks, but smoke was kept from inside the plant.
