    Damn. I heard the sirens of the various emergency vehicles, my wife and I were eating nearby at the Tower Inn, when all hell broke loose– Never smelled/saw smoke though. The police definitely locked Washtenaw down tight! I’ve always liked that big gambrel roofed gem– I hope they can save it. On the other hand, glad no one was hurt..
