Tower of Fire Explodes from New York Manhole

A pedestrian was shocked to see a 15-foot explosion blow away a West Village manhole cover the other day. But not too shocked to start filming! Video after the jump, in case you're wondering whether it's safe outdoors, post snowpocalypse.

Over on Reddit, the consensus is that this is evidence of "two wizards battling underground in the sewers," possibly with dragons. Sounds about right.
