DETROIT (AP) - Water from a burst pipe has encased part of a Detroit home in ice.

E.T. Williamson Sr. tells the Detroit Free Press that a pipe on the third floor of the house burst several days ago, causing water to pour through the walls and into the basement.

Temperatures in the Detroit area have been below zero, causing the steady flow of water to freeze.

The 56-year-old Williamson says the basement has three to four feet of water in it.

Williamson says he lost the home in tax foreclosure, but his clothing and other belongings still were inside.

WJBK-TV reports that the water also flowed down the driveway and into the street before freezing.

A bulldozer was called in to remove thick sheets of ice from the street.
