Bridgestone to take a (small) financial hit

Bridgestone says that the recent fire at its factory in Tochigi, is going to cost the company around $22m of profits. The company will however end the year with a profit in the region of $700m. Full production at the plant, which accounts for 13% of the company's domestic production, will not be resumed for a year while repairs are made.
