DETROIT – Detroit fire crews are battling a blaze Tuesday at Woodward Bar in the city’s New Center neighborhood.
Witnesses said the fire started before 10:30 a.m. People live and work in the area and many had been evacuated while crews work to contain the fire.
“I live on the residence facing Woodward and when I stepped out onto my balcony after smelling smoke I couldn’t even see the GM headquarters, well, the old GM headquarters across the street and I immediately got concerned and I’m glad to see all my other fellow residence safe on the floor but this is very alarming,” Leron Bishop said.
Crews are still battling the fire and have not released an official cause of the fire or announced if anyone has been injured.
