A fire has erupted at General Electric's Appliance Park in Louisville, Kentucky, shutting down production at the sprawling manufacturing center that employs thousands.
The fire broke out Friday morning in a nonproduction building, creating huge columns of smoke as more than 100 firefighters battle the blaze.
(NYSE:GE) spokeswoman Kim Freeman says there are no known injuries.
She says the building engulfed in flames was used for offices and storage and is used by a private supplier distribution center.
Local media outlets report that the cause is not yet known.
GE makes a range of appliances at the facility, including washing machines, dryers, dish washers, refrigerators and water heaters.
