DORCHESTER (CBS) – A crane removing trees damaged by Tropical Storm Irene fell over in Dorchester on Tuesday.

The crane was leaning on some power lines spilling diesel fuel as of late Tuesday night.

As a precaution, six nearby homes were evacuated.

City officials told WBZ-TV the company did not have the proper permits to do the work and could face fines.
