The Michigan Public Service Commission and the Detroit City Council are holding meetings Sept. 29 on wildfires that burned 71 houses and garages in pockets of neighborhoods across the city.
The PSC says it's investigating the role of DTE Energy Co. in responding to the Sept. 7 fires, blamed in part on power lines that fell in winds that gusted to 50 miles per hour.
The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press say the city council scheduled a meeting that day with DTE and fire officials.
Members of Mayor Dave Bing's administration have met with the utility and fire department about their responses during the blazes. Most of the burned houses were vacant. Twenty-nine were occupied.
DTE has said 750 power lines fell because of the high winds.
