COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The fire department says issues with underground electrical vaults are suspected after small explosions were heard in downtown Columbus.

No injuries were reported after the explosions about 1 p.m. Sunday across the street from the Ohio Statehouse. Bits of blackened material were visible by a sidewalk grate afterward.

Fire department spokeswoman Battalion Chief Tracy Smith says the scene was turned over to the city’s public utilities division.
