    A building was evacuated early Tuesday after a manhole exploded in Brooklyn, the FDNY says.

    The manhole exploded near a building on Lincoln Place in Park Slope just before 1 a.m., firefighters say. Afterward, crews evacuated the building due to high carbon dioxide levels inside.

    Firefighters and Con Edison workers were both sent to the scene and no injuries have been reported.

    It’s not clear what caused the explosion.
