This morning, police evacuated a MassDOT building at 185 Kneeland St. after the discovery of a mysterious device. The BPD bomb squad blew it up, then found a second, similar device.
The Globe reports authorities didn't blow it up because a label on it identified it as a "high-voltage fuse" and discovered they had fallen out of a truck.
Not long after, Emma Tangoren reports, the nearby 745 Atlantic Ave. was evacuated, and the bomb squad summoned again - for what this time turned out to be an abandoned bag full of shoes.
