BLOOMFIELD TWP (WWJ) - Nearly 1,500 DTE Energy customers in Bloomfield Township remain in the dark Monday morning. The power went out just before 6 a.m. in the Woodward Avenue and Square Lake Road area due to an equipment problem.

Police say crews are now trying to fix the problem, but traffic is backed up to I-75. 

Power is expected to be restored later this morning.
