BOSTON (CBS) – Multiple manhole explosions have shut down streets near the Charles/MGH Red Line station.
Video from SkyEye shows the flames and thick black smoke pouring out of a manhole on Cambridge Street under the Red Line tracks. One witness told WBZ-TV she heard three explosions and a manhole cover flew 30 feet up in the air.
All Red Line trains are temporarily bypassing the station. Passengers who need service to Charles/MGH will be accommodated by a shuttle bus outside of Kendall/MIT.
