Hyde Park Avenue fire

The Boston Fire Department posted this photo of the Hyde Park Avenue gas-main fire around 12:30 p.m., more than 18 hours after it began.

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.
