A parts shortage persists, forcing General Motors to idle its Lansing Grand River Assembly plant. A shutdown caused by the shortage will likely continue through Tuesday.

The shutdown affects approximately 2,700 workers at the plant.

The automaker won't identify the part or its supplier, but it does say the shortage has been caused by a fire at supplier warehouse.

Shifts at the Lansing assembly plant were shortened beginning Thursday night to stretch remain supplies of the part. Friday, the plant was shut down.

The plant assembles Cadillacs and Camaros.
