Residents on a Forest Hills block lost power much of Saturday after a pair of manholes exploded.

Reportedly, the fiery wake-up call occurred at about 6:30 a.m. along 69th Avenue off Metropolitan Avenue.

No injuries were reported, but two parked vehicles were damaged as flames shot through nearby manholes. Firefighters quickly responded to bring the fires under control.

According to Con Edison, two customers remained without power as of noon Saturday. Service was fully restored later in the day.

An investigation into the blasts is ongoing.
