Fire at the old Packard Plant in Detroit
A fire has been burning since at least 6:45 a.m. this morning in the old Packard Plant in Detroit.
More from the Detroit Free Press:
The fire was still burning at about 11 a.m., one of numerous blazes that firefighters respond to monthly at the plant, he said. "When they’re over there with 30 (firefighters), that leaves holes in the city," Varnas said. "That’s why we have to stop these fires." Arson Capt. Patrick McNulty said firefighters are only allowed to spray the blaze from outside the ruins of the old plant. "There's standing orders not to go in there," McNulty said. "Too dangerous for the firefighters."
