- Authorities are investigating after a Detroit Department of Transportation bus terminal was damaged by a large fire early Friday morning.

The fire began around 1:30 Friday morning at the DDOT Shoemaker Terminal on St. Jean Street on the city's east side. Crews reported several minor explosions as they worked to put out the flames.

The fire reached two-alarms before it was contained around 3 a.m. No injuries were reported.

DDOT Director, Dan Dirks, says 8 buses were damaged. Dirks says he was expecting to have to cut service Friday morning, but he was happy to report service went on as usual with maybe only a few-minutes' delay at some stops.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
