Homes north of Brown Road, south of Judah Road, east of Baldwin Road and west of Joslyn Road were all evacuated around 11:30 p.m.

Consumers Energy is at the fire scene to shut off the gas, along with assistance from Michigan State Police, Orion Township, and Waterford Township fire departments.

The blaze also knocked out communications to the Oakland County 911 system. Please only call for true emergencies at this time until the 911 lines are restored.
