LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- Work will resume at a General Motors plant in northeast Ohio on Tuesday following last week's shutdown caused by a fire at an auto parts plant in Michigan.

Tom Mock of General Motors Co. says shifts will begin at the Lordstown plant near Youngstown after significant progress has been made by Magna International Inc., whose interior parts plant near Howell, Mich., caught fire Wednesday.

The fire burned about 25 percent of the factory space and two large holes in the roof and forced GM and Mazda Motor Corp. both to stop making cars at some plants.

The Lordstown plant makes the popular Chevrolet Cruze small car.
