Canton Township Fire Chief Joshua Meier said more than 150 cars and trucks are involved.
On top of the various flammable auto fluids, the vehicles are stacked up two and three high which is further complicating efforts. Additionally, no fire hydrants are located on the property, so tanker trucks from Van Buren, Superior and Sumpter townships are being used to bring water to the scene.READ MORE: Motown Museum Set To Reopen This Weekend With Expansion Project Near Completion
