(WXYZ) - The cold weather is causing dozens of people who live in the Chapel Court Apartments on 7 Mile near Lahser in Detroit to take drastic measures inside their units.
Many families with young kids have to use their stoves and ovens to keep warm.
The complex is 50 years old and uses old boiler central heat. People in their apartments have no thermostats or controls. They say that for months, the heat has gone off at night.
A manager on site tells 7 Action News they are trying to keep up on repairs. One boiler has been replaced in one of the buildings.
