DETROIT -- A Michigan plant that builds the Ford F-150 pickup was briefly evacuated Thursday after a fire broke out on the roof.
No one was injured and employees at the Dearborn Truck Plant returned to work about 30 minutes later, after the blaze was extinguished, a Ford Motor Co. spokeswoman said.
The fire started at 5:40 p.m. ET above the final assembly area of the plant, one of two that make Ford's top-selling vehicle. Fox 2 in Detroit reported that the building was filling with smoke when the fire department was called.
The cause of the fire was under investigation and there was no major damage, Ford said.
It was the second fire this summer at a Ford plant in Michigan. Firefighters put out a blaze at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, which makes the Mustang and new Lincoln Continental, on July 19.
