Firefighters battled a fire on Friday in downtown Dearborn near the DTE substation located at Michigan Avenue and Howard.

Dearborn Patch reports the fire started in a van parked near the substation, which now appears to be under control. The substation was not on fire, but officials had to shut down power because of the threat of the fire.

DTE said on Friday at least 4,000 customers in Dearborn were without power.
