The exact place is near Clinton Town. The fire was massive and was of industrial source. Fortunately, the authorities managed to bring it under control.

Some pepole were being evacuated from the place of the fire. The intensity of flames was very high. The fire was of the very sparky and strong sort. It was possible to see it from few miles away.

The media also reported some explosions on the site as well as further intensive burning. Some debris was carried into the air and carried several miles out of the site of the fire.

People have been warned intensely not to underestimate the fire. "We cannot stress enough how dangerous it is. Please, please, plase, stay home." The people in the area were warned by the authorities.

The CBS News makes specific report:

The Macomb County Sheriff's Office, which was assisting police, said evacuations were underway but the fire department told CBS News shortly before 2 a.m. Tuesday that the fire was under control and there were no longer any evacuation orders in place. Air quality was monitored by the Macomb County HAZMAT team and "all was clear upon testing," the department added.

Clinton Township Fire Chief Tim Duncan said the vacant building had large butane and nitrous oxide tanks stored inside that might have been the source of the blaze. Duncan said one firefighter was hurt and the building was a "total loss."
