Report: GM resumes production after Magna fire, Mazda and Ford still slow?
According to reports, the fire started on Wednesday and took nearly a day to put out, damaging around 40 percent of the 187,000-square-foot Magna Atrium plant in Michigan. The Atrium plant builds door panels, instrument clusters and interior trim pieces for GM, Chrysler, Ford, Mazda and Nissan.
Thankfully, the fire didn't injure any workers, but Magna officials are still trying to determine the extent of the physical damage. No word yet on what the monetary damages will be from the fire, but according to The Detroit News, about half the plant is already back up and running, and the Detroit Free Press indicates that GM will resume full production at its plants today.
