One Ford employee was injured Tuesday afternoon when a fire broke out at a propane filling station outside of Ford’s Dearborn Stamping Plant. The employee was rushed to a nearby hospital, and his or her condition is currently unknown, according to WDIV Detroit.

The Ford Dearborn Stamping Plant is located on Miller Road in Dearborn, Michigan. It employs more than 1,900 workers, and currently produces body panels for F-150 and F-Series Super Duty pickups, the Ford Escape, Expedition, Focus, and Mustang, as well as the Lincoln Navigator. The cause of the fire at the facility on Tuesday is under investigation.

Tuesday’s fire is reminiscent of several similar incidents at other Ford facilities from throughout the year. In July, part of the automaker’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant erupted in flames, and another fire came to the Dearborn Truck Plant just months later in September. At the end of October, yet another fire started in the basement of Ford’s World Headquarters in Dearborn.

Ford’s Dearborn Stamping Plant is part of the sprawling River Rouge Center, which is home to six different Ford factories, plus a facility operated by steelmaker AK Steel.
