A water main break on Massachusetts Avenue forced the evacuation of several buildings Tuesday morning, officials said. The break was reported just before 8 a.m. on the sidewalk outside 564 Massachusetts Ave., near Chester Square in the South End, said Steve MacDonald, a spokesman for the Boston Fire Department. Water got into some of the surrounding buildings, which were evacuated, MacDonald said.
