“We’ve had several calls of people trapped in their homes who have medical problems or physical limitations that we’re helping…and we’ve had a lot of homes filling up with smoke from water flooding up to their electrical outlets,” Dearborn Heights Fire Chief Dave Brogan told WDIV-TV. The Associated Press reported that the city plans on seeking an emergency declaration.
