Firefighters from two area departments along with the Sebewaing police were dispatched Wednesday to a fire at the former Lapeer Metal Stamping (LMS) building in the village.
LMS opened in October 2004 after the former Tower Automotive plant closed in 2002. When LMS was accepting applications prior to the opening of the plant, about 900 people applied, according to a story published at the time by the Huron Daily Tribune. LMS closed its doors in 2008. Approximately 100 people were employed there at the time of the closure.
