A report of a flash and smoke coming out of a manhole has led to crews blocking parts of Snelling Avenue in St. Paul on Monday afternoon.

A caller apparently saw a flash in the manhole, then smoke, come out of a manhole on Snelling, just south of University Avenue around 3:15 p.m., the department said.

There is a power outage in the area, the department said.

Lanes going north on Snelling are blocked from Shields to University, the department said.

Xcel Energy is at the scene.
