KALAMAZOO (WKZO-AM) -- A sewer overflow near the Deja Vu nightclub on Ravine Road near Douglas Avenue Saturday spilled 400 gallons of raw sewage into the street, which spewed out of a manhole.

City crews blame a blockage in the line for the backup that resulted in the spill.

It was first reported at about 9:21 p.m. Saturday, and the blockage was cleared about an hour later by the city's public services staff.

Officials with the city say the area has been cleaned and everything is back to normal.
