Minor fire reported at Ford plant

A small fire caused the evacuation of Ford’s Buffalo Stamping Plant on Lake Shore Road in Woodlawn Tuesday night.

There were no injuries reported in the fire, which occurred in the basement of the plant shortly before 10 p.m. and was reported as a three-alarm fire. Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz tweeted that although the fire was minor, multiple alarms were called because of the size of the plant.

A statement released by the plant said employees were evacuated “as part of our normal safety process,” and no impact to production levels was expected.
