At least 1 person is dead and 80 homes and businesses burned across three Boston suburbs - Lawrence, North Andover, and Andover this afternoon after a high-pressure gas main explosion rocked the area shortly after 3:00 PM EST.
Some homes were blown completely off of their foundations, while others burned out of control as firefighters essentially play whack-a-mole, calling in aid from multiple surrounding areas. The State Police called for all Columbia gas customers in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover to evacuate, and all of South Lawrence has been evacuated. It's estimated that 51,000 residents and businesses are customers of Columbia Gas. Power to all three cities and towns has been completely shut down in an effort to reduce the risk of further explosions.
From the Columbia Gas website, posted this morning:
