LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) - Dozens of people at a Detroit-area assisted living home have been forced to leave after state inspectors found fire-safety problems.

TV station WDIV (https://bit.ly/1sQGlWp ) says Ashley Court in Livonia specializes in taking care of people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The campus was packed with cars Wednesday as people moved possessions and relatives out of the home.

Some residents were transported by ambulances.

Gabe McCann picked up his 85-year-old mother after getting a phone call around noon. He says moving the elderly from place to place “creates setbacks” for them.

There was no immediate comment from Ashley Court. No one answered the phone Wednesday night.
