    Manhole fire at 6th Avenue and 51st Street.

    There's been another manhole explosion in Midtown.

    This fire this time happened near Radio City Music Hall on 51st Street and 6th Avenue.  Fortunately, despite bustling traffic on an unseasonably warm day, no one was injured.

    Firefighters are still investigating what caused the explosion.

    This is the second manhole fire in two days. On Tuesday a transformer fire caused a manhole explosion at 7th Avenue and 52nd Street. A Con Edison worker suffered minor injuries.
