Smoke-belching manhole disrupts Boylston Street outside the BPL after possible transformer explosion

Smoking manhole in Back Bay

Harry Grillo reports Boston firefighters are outside the BPL's Boylston Street entrance, where a manhole began getting all nasty around 8:30 p.m.

Alexandra Zafris reports:

Was in the basement of Old South Church on Boylston Street and felt an explosion of some kind. Lights flickered.


Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


.... the mystery for which they had to shut down Paul Gore Street has resurfaced? Gladys will be interested to know.

I came out of the library while this was in progress and walked to the Hynes Convention Center T stop. You could smell the smoke all the way there.
