Manhole Fire on Atlantic

According to Gothamist newsmap this fire happened in front of 169 Atlantic Avenue. A user on the Gothamist forum said:

A fire and series of explosions started about 20 minutes ago underneath atlantic ave at the corner of clinton st. It seemed to begin in a utility bunker in front of key food, then spread to the manhole in the middle of the intersection. At the worst of it, black smoke was filling the whole intersection, flames were intermittently reaching a few feet up out of the manhole, and small explosions could be heard every 10-30 seconds. Fire crews on site seem content to let it burn itself out.
