The Fire Department of New York responded to multiple manhole fires in Brooklyn on August 13, which caused the evacuations of nearby homes, but everything is under control now.

The fires are near 176 Maujer St, said the FDNY. It later said that the fires are “under control.”

The department had called all hands to the situation.

176 Maujer Street is around the corner from the Grand Street L metro station.
