Goodyear Tire & Rubber Plant in Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Workers at the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Plant in Fayetteville were forced to evacuate the building early Monday morning.

According to WTVD, employees were evacuated from the plant off Ramsey Street around 2 a.m. after someone called in a threat.

No one was injured and workers were eventually allowed to go back in and resume work.

Last month, hundreds of workers were evacuated after an employee reported seeing a man inside the plant with gun.

A sheriff’s department spokesperson said they did not find a person with a holster or handgun, but workers were evacuated out of caution.

The plant, which is one of Fayetteville’s largest employers, is the largest radial tire manufacturer in the U.S. and produces 30,000 tires a day.

    I’ve been buying Cooper tires. Thought they were the last American made tires. Might try some Goodyear’s next time.
