Water Main Break Forces Temporary Road Closure In Boston

BOSTON (CBS) – A water main break forced officials to close roads temporarily in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston early Sunday morning.

The 12-inch wide pipe broke about 4:30 a.m. on Hemenway Street, spilling thousands of gallons of water.

At the height of the break, there was 6-8 inches of water in the roadway.

Crews were forced to shut water service off to the area and close off part of Hemenway Street during the day Sunday.

At least one car was damaged in the break.

As of 6 p.m., crews were still on the scene repairing the break.
