Portion of Brigham and Women’s evacuated

In a sign of how jittery the marathon bombings have left Boston, a portion of Brigham and Women’s Hospital was evacuated at about 3 p.m. Wednesday after a person pulled up to the valet entrance at 45 Francis St. and left the car unattended and apparently locked.

Valets noticed gas cans inside and security ordered an evacuation of the building out of an abundance of caution “because it’s post-marathon,” hospital spokeswoman Erin McDonough said.
