One of the biggest sellers in all the automotive realm is the Ford F-150 truck.

Ford had to stop production of the F-150 this week due to a parts shortage from a supplier.

The reason for the parts shortage was a major fire at that supplier.

The same fire forced other automakers to also halt or at least slow production.

The fire was at a plant in Eaton Rapids, Michigan owned by Meridian Magnesium Products.

At this point there is no word on just how long production of the F-150 will be halted, a Ford spokesman has said that it would last at least a few days.
