Update: 2:40 p.m.:

Actually, it was multiple manhole fires, according to FDNY. The fires broke out this afternoon near 176 Maujer Street in Brooklyn. Four to five manholes were involved, but all of the fires were contained by 2:20 p.m.

The cause remains unknown. "There's a number of things, of reasons it could be," said FDNY spokesperson Michael Parrella.

Con-Ed, he added, would be investigating. "It's their equipment, so they are better suited to do the investigation of the fire. If it was was a house, you know, we would do the investigation, but it's not."

My problem is the idiot recording it talking about how she hates Bushwick. The $2,000 rent isn't a good enough reason? Definitely a troll
