DETROIT (AP) - The lights are back on for all but about 3,900 Michigan of the 666,000 utility customers blacked out by an ice storm that hit the state more than a week ago, but anger at the municipal power company in the state's capital continues to boil.

Michigan authorities also blame at least five deaths on the storm, three killed in crashes and two who died from carbon monoxide fumes from emergency generators.

DTE Energy Co. says about 800 of its 210,000 affected homes and businesses remained blacked out Sunday.

Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says "essentially all" its 416,000 affected customers were back online Sunday, while the Lansing Board of Water & Light says about 3,300 of its 40,000 affected customers were still out Sunday.
