What Caused A Dozen Fire-Rescue Trucks To Come Downtown?

I was alerted via Twitter user @FoodSparks that there was a situation developing downtown, not terribly far from our offices: “What’s going on downtown? 2 ladder trucks, 6 other full size fire trucks, and multiple fire & rescue vehicles???” When I arrived at the site, Dallas Fire-Rescue, according to a bystander, had just rescued a man who had apparently fallen down a manhole, under the building on Elm next door to the Majestic. He was being loaded out on a gurney, but appeared responsive. I hope he is OK. Pics after the jump.
