‘Massive’ water leak at Ashburton Place

Officials are rushing to discover the source of a “massive” water leak at One Ashburton Place, a state office building near Government Center. The leak has led to the closure of nearby streets this afternoon, officials said.

State House Superintendent Tammy Kraus said there was a “massive” leak at the office building that was reported after 1 p.m.

The leak is causing traffic complications in downtown Boston just minutes after traffic was shut down and detoured while Boston firefighters investigated a smoking Green Line train at the Park Street station.
