Dead trees played a major role in the largest breakout of fires in Detroit since at least 2010.
“It’s starting to go from manhole to manhole,” a firefighter told dispatchers.
This is a very serious situation because the Fire Department fights more than a dozen house and building fires a day.
A Detroit woman determined to keep her power from being shut off assaulted a DTE worker and then turned her dog on him, police said.
Conspiracy theories about Detroit’s emergency manager continue to circulate, but they’re rarely true.
