HOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Officials say employees are back on the job a week after a fire damaged an auto parts plant in southeastern Michigan.
Magna International Inc. says all workers at its facility in Livingston County's Howell Township have been called back to work.
The auto supplier also says it is meeting its customer parts requirements through a combination of 80 percent production at that facility and 20 percent production at another Magna location being used on a temporary basis.
Only about 25 percent of the production area was damaged in the March 2 fire, but it burned two large holes in the roof of the building and caused structural damage.
The blaze had a ripple effect in the auto industry with thousands of workers temporarily idled as a result.
