Manhole fires spike in New York City in the winter season, particularly following a snowfall, when salt is applied to the road surface. Carbon monoxide (CO) — a colorless, odorless, tasteless and toxic gas that is totally undetectable to the human senses — is generated during manhole fires. CO is deadly, and in the case of a manhole fire, CO accumulation may potentially lead to an explosion. If you see a manhole that is smoking, don’t hesitate, call 911 right away. And remember to always have a working smoke/CO alarm in your home. See more #FDNYSmart info about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide at [web page]
