The Dearborn, MI, plant, which opened in 1939, has 2.7 million square feet, employs more than 400 workers and produces the F-150/Super Duty, Focus, Navigator and Expedition, according to the Ford website.

Ford’s Dearborn Stamping Plant is part of the sprawling River Rouge Center, which is home to six different Ford factories, plus a facility operated by steelmaker AK Steel.

The cause of the fire at the facility on Tuesday is under investigation.
