A Facebook video captures two manhole explosions that occurred in Middle Village on Tuesday morning.

The video, taken by Vincent Dionisi and posted to the Juniper Park Civic Association‘s Facebook page, shows firefighters on the scene as smoke and flames emerge from the sewer and an open manhole located in front of a crosswalk on the corner of Eliot Avenue and 76th Place.
