NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

More than 1,000 Con Edison customers in Queens were without power Thursday following fires in two manholes and on power lines.

The fires broke out at around 6 a.m. at 95th Avenue near 96th Street in Woodhaven. The situation was under control about one hour later.

SkyFoxHD was overhead where the lines were lying on the ground.

Con Edison crews reported to the scene to deal with the power problem.

By late morning, full service had been restored to nearly all customers, according to Con Ed.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
