A quick update on those four manholes that caught fire near 176 Maujer Street, where three residences were evacuated due to CO readings. ConEd says the cause of the fires has yet to be determined, but there are no customers without power. And the FDNY says the fire, which broke out shortly before 1:08 p.m., was under control by 2:20 p.m., with no injuries to report.

While trouble came from below in Bushwick, it came from above in Williamsburg.

This morning firefighters closed off a portion of Bedford Avenue due to a busted, leaking parapet atop 349 Bedford, near South 4th Street. No debris had fallen but the area below the leaking segment of roof was cordoned off as a preventative measure.
Take a couple of aspirin and sleep it off, North Brooklyn. Tomorrow’s another day.
