NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Crews in Norfolk were called to Granby Street Tuesday morning for a manhole in pieces.

Dispatch says the call for service was for the 600 block of Granby Street — right in front of the Walter E. Hoffman United States Courthouse.

Images from the scene showed a Norfolk Fire-Rescue unit at an uncovered manhole.

Harry Kenyon with Norfolk Public Works says the manhole cracked and was in the street.

Kenyon says they do not really know how the cover broke. A cone was placed over the manhole until crews could replaced the cover.
