DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit is bankrupt.

Kevyn Orr, Emergency Manager for the Motor City, filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection Thursday.  It's the largest U.S. city to do so.

The city has around 18-billion dollars of debt.  The filing will give the city time to fend off creditors and restructure its finances.
