Massive gas line fire in Orion Township, Mich. leads to evacuations

Massive fire in Auburn Hills burns out of control

A huge fire erupted late Monday night in Auburn Hills, Oakland County, Michigan, which the county sheriff's office said was due to a gas line explosion.

Farmington residents in need of assistance may also call the Public Safety Department's non-emergency number, 248-474-4700.

Generally, WDIV says, high-pressure gas main leaks don't cause fire because the pressure of the gas is too high.

Meijer and other stores in nearby shopping centers were evacuated and the area remained closed to traffic through at lead midnight while firefighters stopped the flames and accessed the damage.

No injuries are being reported at this time.

Auburn Hills police have cautioned the people to avoid the area where the incident took place.
