Underground Explosion in the Old Port Sends Manhole Cover Into the Air [VIDEO]
This looked like something right out of the movies! A fire underground caused an explosion on Fore Street Wednesday that sent a manhole cover about four feet into the air. No one was hurt and there wasn't any damage above ground, but power was knocked out to the area near Five Guys for a little while.
Alec Bubier shot this video while he was eating at Five Guys when smoke started to pour out of the manhole and then....BOOM!
The Portland Fire Department got the fire under control pretty quickly.
