The city of Detroit says there were 14 fires reported overnight, which was the first night of Angels' Night. That's down from 17 last year.

According to the city, seven of the fires were structure fires, only one of which was vacant. The other seven were trash bins, vehicles and one garage fire.

Last year was the quietest Angels' Night patrol in the 20-year history with only 52 total fires reported.

Of the seven structure fires, only the one involving a vacant home was deemed suspicious. The cause of the other fires are undetermined and still under investigation.
