Flames swept through at least two dozen Detroit homes, fanned by strong winds that toppled power lines across the city and knocked out service to at least 113,000 Michigan homes and businesses.
Tuesday night's fires were scattered through at least three neighborhoods, including along several blocks on the east side.
The National Weather Service reports wind gusts of up to 50 mph.
No injuries were reported.
Detroit Fire Department Capt. Steve Varnas tells said that some fires may have been caused by dead tree limbs falling onto power lines.
