Detroit News

Surveillance camera footage from Checkers burger drive-thru on Brown Road in Orion Township shows a huge explosion Tuesday morning.

A gas line eruption ignited a blaze that began about 11 p.m. Monday on the north side of Brown Road, west of Joslyn Road, at the border of Orion Township and Auburn Hills and knocked out the Oakland County Sheriff’s 911 system, which was back online early Tuesday.
