|Burned-out Detroit home|
From CBS Detroit:
Detroit firefighters battled flames and non-working hydrants in a west side neighborhood Tuesday morning.But by that time the fire had spread to two other homes.
Crews were called to the area of Monterey and Lawton and found a house ablaze and fire hydrants that weren't pumping out water.
"We had no pressure in the hydrants on Monterey between Lawton and Linwood," Fire Chief Joe English told WWJ's Mike Campbell. "So, that caused some problems for us in the beginning. We had to stretch across Linwood and all the way down to Elmhurst just to get water."
