Owners of an automotive manufacturing facility that caught fire last week and was damaged by a series of explosions have established a bold rebuilding goal, according to the Lansing State Journal.

Eaton Rapids Fire chief Roger McNutt said Meridian Magnesium Products of America intends to have its entire complex rebuilt and re-opened in four months.

McNutt said it's still unclear what caused the fire and explosions.  McNutt is hopeful he and other local fire officials can enter the area where he suspects the fire started within a few days.

This week, the truck side of the Ford Kansas City assembly Plant in Missouri shut down and about 3,400 workers went home because of the parts shortage caused by the fire at Meridian Magnesium Products in Eaton Rapids.
