As of 8:15 PM Saturday night Ypsilanti Fire Department, Huron Valley Ambulance, Ypsilanti Community Utility Authority (YCUA), and DTE are searching for the source of a suspected water main break on Pearl Street between Huron and Washington in Ypsilanti. According to YCUA, there is what appears to be a water main break in the vicinity of a brick building located at 108 Pearl. The building is directly across the street from Congdons Ace Hardware. No one appeared to be inside 108 Pearl Street except for firemen.

YUCA and Ypsilanti Fire Department are waiting for DTE to detect the exact location of what is believed to be a water main break. Temperatures are currently in the low single digits turning Pearl Street downtown into a sheet of ice and creating dangerous conditions for crews.

This is an ongoing situation. Stay tuned for updates.
