Detroit firefighters battle fire and low water pressure

Burned-out Detroit home
There is so much wrong with Detroit. The Motor City is near Lake Huron--but getting any water to fight a fire was a problem early this morning.

From CBS Detroit:
Detroit firefighters battled flames and non-working hydrants in a west side neighborhood Tuesday morning.

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."
But by that time the fire had spread to two other homes.
