Rescue crews were called to the law offices of Gary Fletcher shortly before 10:00 p.m. last night. Officials say the fire began after power lines dropped on the building – Once the flames began to spread firefighters left the building at 522 Michigan, to wait for DTE Energy officials to cut the power at the scene. While the building sustained much damage, no injuries were reported and the fire was contained to building. Hurricane Sandy has left thousands of DTE Energy customers locally, without power according to the DTE outage map. In Port Huron alone, the map shows over 6,000 are waking to no electricity. Reports from the Port Huron Fire Department said they are dealing with a number of downed power lines throughout the city. Neighborhoods around Sherman Oaks and from Lapeer to Union north to south and 7th Street to 16th Street east to west are completely blacked out. There are also widespread outages in Fort Gratiot, Burtchville Township, St. Clair and Port Huron Township. Officials with DTE Energy say crews are working on restoration efforts, but the wind, which is expected to gust up to 50 mph through about 1:00 p.m. today is slowing down the work.
