The Boston Fire Department reports that shortly after noon, somebody drove a Hyundai Genesis into first a light pole and then the house at 1482 Hyde Park Ave.

Roslindale's seemingly eternal flame was finally doused by firefighters, National Grid workers and a lot of sand around 2:30 this afternoon after National Grid finished rigging up a temporary main to replace the one that burst into flames during repair work around 6:10 p.m. on New Year's Eve.

Dousing the fire would require shutting off the 10-inch gas main that's feeding it, which would force hundreds of homes to lose heat. Officials decided to monitor the fire as National Grid workers build a temporary bypass line around it. Once that's finished, the main will be shut for repairs and then turned back on.
UPDATE, 10 p.m. Fire still burning. BFD says problem is that shutting off gas would leave many residents without heat, adds, "This scene is expected to be active well into tomorrow."
