Loews evacuated in Boston

Cold-weary Bostonians seeking a little diversion at the Loews found themselves back out on a frigid Tremont Street late this afternoon when a pipe burst and the megaplex was evacuated.

Earlier, the Prudential Center mall developed an impromptu waterfall when a pipe burst. Chico's was ruined, Julie Loncich reports.
