Dangerous situation in Oak Park

Earlier tonight a truck carrying fuel some how began leaking.  Right now Greenfield is closed between 11 Mile and 12 Mile Rds.  A large amount of fuel has already entered the sewer system which has led to evacuations of area homes and businesses.  Several fire departments are on scene including Beverly Hills, Troy, and Southfield.  Several sources are also reporting the whole Oakland County Haz-Mat Team has been activated, along with the County's Emergency Operation Center.  This is a potentially serious situation and the public is being asked to stay out of the area and let the crews work.  I will try to post updates as I hear them from the media.

Update:  The situation is still on going, could be closed for a few more hours.  Road commission and water departments are on scene as well assisting.
