SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A large fire is burning Tuesday along 22 Mile Road in Shelby Township.

Firefighters said the smoke is coming from the 4700 block of 22 Mile Road, behind Lutz Roofing Company.

If you were driving in northern Oakland or Macomb counties on Tuesday (March. 1), then you might have seen a massive column of black smoke.

Police said construction roofing materials in the back parking lot of the Lutz Roofing Company caught fire. Firefighters had two ladder trucks extended as they dumped water on the flames.

Shelby police issued a hazardous air alert for 23 Mile Road between Ryan and Van Dyke roads, in the direction the smoke was blowing.

Nobody has been evacuated, but police want nearby residents to stay inside their homes with their windows shut until the smoke subsides. The Shelby Township Fire Department sent out an advisement for residents in the area north of 22 Mile Road and south of 23 Mile Road between Ryan and Van Dyke roads.
