Nearly a dozen corpses awaiting services have been pulled from a fire at Flint-area funeral home. Authorities say the 11 bodies were removed Wednesday night from a walk-in cooler at Sharp Funeral Home in Swartz Creek by building staff and firefighters. The fire at the funeral home was reported about 10:15 p.m.

No one was inside the building and no injuries were reported. The bodies were moved to other funeral homes run by the family-owned company. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

Swartz Creek is about 55 miles northwest of Detroit.
