A small blaze at Jeep’s Toledo Assembly Plant was ousted by fire fighters Monday night, local news affiliate 13 ABC reports.
The blaze was confined to the paint shop area of the large assembly complex and was put out by fire fighters before it sparked back up. The cause of the fire is still unknown and its not clear how or if it affected shift work at the plant today. The plant was occupied at the time of the fire, but fortunately, no employees were injured.
The Toledo facility is responsible for building the Jeep Wrangler JK and will soon build the all-new Jeep Wrangler JL and Jeep’s pickup truck when it arrives. It formerly built the Jeep Cherokee as well before production of the mid-size SUV was moved to Fiat Chrysler’s Belvidere, Illinois plant to free up production capacity at the Toledo site.
