'It Sounded Like a Bomb': Manhole Fires in Manhattan Cause Loud Bangs, Terrify NYers

Recommended Posts

Multiple manhole fires in Union Square disturbed a slew of New Yorkers as they trudged to or from work on a damp Friday, causing loud bangs that witnesses described as sounding like a "huge explosion."

Fire trucks were present at the scene near Broadway and 12th Street just before 8 a.m. and the city warned to expect extensive traffic delays in the area. One nearby building, 826 Broadway, was evacuated for elevated carbon monoxide levels. There were no injuries, though.


Events like these strike me as preparation moves. Scare tactics. Inducement of tension!
