Crews were working to repair a gas leak and water main break in Clare for most of the day on Sunday.
According to the Clare County Central Dispatch, the lines broke around 8:15 Sunday morning near the Tendercare Health and Rehabilitation Center with 71 residents inside. Roads have been closed to traffic in the area.
Authorities have not issued evacuation orders.
Residents at that facility were being asked to not drink water from the tap until Monday morning at the earliest.
As of 5:15 Sunday evening, DTE turned the gas off and roads have been reopened. The water was also shut off in the area as crews work to repair the broken water main.
