Residents in Brooklyn were woken up early Tuesday morning with loud popping, cracking sounds from multiple manhole fires. Fire officials say they received at least seven calls around 1 a.m. from different addresses on and near Dean Street in Crown Heights. No injuries have been reported from the incidents but around 2:45 Con Edison customers were without power, according to the utilities company. A caution tape was seen wrapped around a charred and badly damaged vehicle. One of the manholes may have been directly underneath a parked car, according to FDNY. No other information was immediately available.
