Just an FYI - there has been a horrible accident and fire in Hazel Park MI, just north of Detroit. The tanker immediately exploded. There are reports of 3 semi trucks involved, possibly cars also, and an unconfirmed report of a fire engine that fell into the fire from above. The fire is located on I-75 (the main line through Detroit) at nine mile road. The bridge above the fire has completely collapsed in the area. There are likely deaths involved, but no confirmation of any thus far.
I have friends on departments in the area, and I really hope the reports about the fire engine are unfounded. Keep the folks in the Detroit metro area in your prayers, it looks pretty bad
