A building on the Ford Motor Company headquarters campus in Dearborn, Michigan was evacuated this morning after a “suspicious package” appeared on the premises.
According to CBS Detroit, hundreds of employees were asked to leave the area as a precaution while the package was being investigated. It was found earlier today in the Regent Court building on campus, although no description of why the package was deemed suspicious has been offered. Ford said that investigators deemed the package safe, and the office resumed normal operations by 1:15pm.
Ford’s Regent Court faces Ford Road, and is situated less than a mile north of the automakers well-known World Headquarters building, affectionately referred to as the “Glass House.”
Today’s events call to mind an incident last October wherein a fire started in the basement of Ford’s world headquarters building, forcing an evacuation. The fire was traced back to an electrical substation, and like today, no injuries resulted.
