Ypsilanti fire knocks out power to 3200+ residents on a cold night

WXYZ and other Detroit television stations are reporting that it was an apartment fire that knocked out power to 3255 Ypsilanti residents this morning.

Power went out at about 1:00 a.m and was restored to most subscribers just before 8:00 a.m. An area on Russell St with 165 subscribers is still without service, with no estimated restoration time given.

Four schools - Erickson Elementary, Forest School, Washtenaw International Middle Academy, and Washtenaw International High School - are closed as a result of the outage, reports the Ann Arbor News. There is a warming shelter open at 239 Spencer Lane near the Ypsilanti Community Middle School at Willow Run.

  1. I just lost power briefly but it was enough to knock my alarm clock out. In fact, I lost it twice. I almost didn't get up in time this morning.
