BOSTON (CBS) – Part of Boylston Street is shut down in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood after intense winds ripped pieces of a facade off a building.
At least two pieces of the facade of 1325 Boylston Street fell Friday afternoon. The first piece fell at about 1:30 p.m. and damaged a car parked below. The second piece fell at about 5 p.m. onto a lower balcony.READ MORE: Man Arrested After Armed Robbery At Haverhill Pot Shop

It is unclear how long the street and sidewalks will be closed. Boston Police say a crane cannot be brought in to fix the facade due to the high winds and rain.
