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.




.... 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.
