PHOTOS: Crews from St. Clair County are fighting a massive fire at multiple structures on St. Clair's Harsens Island on Wednesday. SkyFOX was overhead metro Detroit covering other stories when they spotted a massive plume of black smoke billowing up from Lake St. Clair. As they flew east, the picture grew clearer as several structures appeared to be burning. FOX 2 has learned that structures are cottages from The Old Club, a resort and yacht club on the island. The cottages line the St. Clair River and face toward Canada's Seaway Island. It appears a total of six homes burned to the ground in the massive fire and firefighting boats were on scene to help put out the fire at the homes. Harsens Island is a small strip of land with a population of around 1,000. It is accessible only by ferry.
