A Detroit fire rig crashed through a gas station Monday night on the city’s northeast side. Miraculously, there were no injuries.

Detroit Deputy Fire Commissioner Dave Fornell says at 9:30 p.m. Monday four guys from Engine 56 were responding to a fire on Winchester Street with lights flashing and sirens blaring, when another vehicle crashed into it.
