    We're getting calls here in the media center about a building collapse in New York...

    Can't find anything about this on the web. Info, anyone?

    Explosion sparks four-alarm fire in NYC, says MSNBC. Says fire department says it doesn't appear to be related to terrorism. Nothing on CNN or Fox News Channel on first look.

    That's all I've got at this time.

    Sounds like a big manhole explosion at 43rd and Lex. Steam-pipe.

    Spectacular live shot on local news. Like a volcano - a geyser of hot mud - fifteen feet high in the middle of Lexigton.

    Just turned on CNN. They're talking about absestos in the sludge. Yikes.
