Emergency responders reopened a section of East Carson Street Saturday afternoon following a small utility fire.

Smoke began streaming from a manhole cover just before noon at East Carson and South 12th streets, an Allegheny County emergency dispatcher said. She said a nearby utility pole soon caught fire.

Responders quickly closed Carson Street from South 11th to South 13th streets. They evacuated a store as a precaution, though no structure fires were reported, the dispatcher said.

Duquesne Light responded. City officials began reopening the area by about 1:20 p.m.
