Smoky Manhole Fire Leaves One Injured And Forces Evacuation In Carnarsie

BROOKLYN — One person was injured Tuesday afternoon after a manhole fire sent smoke into a nearby warehouse that had to be evacuated, according to FDNY officials.

Fire officials responded to the blaze at noon in front of 472 E. 101st St., near Foster Avenue. The fire was out half an hour later.

Roughly 100 workers from the warehouse next to the manhole were asked to leave the building after it became filled with smoke, workers and sources said.

One person with an arm injury was taken to Brookdale Hospital, fire officials said.  It was not immediately clear how the person suffered the injury.
