Flushing street on fire!

MYFOXNY.COM - An underground fire burned on a street in Flushing, Queens, Friday afternoon, but there were conflicting accounts of the cause.

The FDNY said the blaze came from a ruptured gas line, but Con Edison called it a "manhole fire." Flames could be seen shooting out of a manhole at the intersection of 75th Avenue and Main Street.

Fire, Con Ed, and National Grid crews were on the scene.

Authorities evacuated one building as a precaution, the FDNY said.

No one was hurt as of 4:30 p.m.

Somewhere there's a terrorist taking notes of accidents like this. They are looking for something like this to exploit on their own schedule.
