100s Evacuated from Boston Apartment Building

Thousands of people were forced from their homes and out into the cold on Monday night in downtown Boston due to a water pipe burst inside the Archstone apartment building.  Firefighters say an elbow joint in a water main connected to the sprinkler system ruptured, sending thousands of gallons into the building. “Every city and town in the commonwealth has a problem right now going from extreme cold to heat, back to cold back to heat and what it’s doing is it’s causing expansion in the pipes,” said Captain Philip Boisbert of the Reading Fire Department. The fire department said the water flowing at the Archstone apartment building stopped flowing before 3 AM Tuesday morning. Crews continue to search for any electrical damage. There is no word on when residents will be let back in.
