According to sources local officials said at least six people were injured and hundreds were ordered to evacuate their homes following a series of 70 explosions that rocked three communities near Boston on Thursday, apparently triggered by a gas pipeline rupture. Meanwhile Live TV images showed firefighters battling blazes in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, around 25 miles (40 km) north of the U.S. city. Reports added the streets were darkened where authorities had cut off electricity and were shutting down gas service in an effort to stop further blazes.



Furthermore at least three people, including one firefighter, were hurt in Andover, the town said in a statement. Moreover six people were being treated at Lawrence General Hospital, said spokeswoman Jill McDonald Halsey and it was not immediately clear if any of those being treated at that hospital were from Andover. Further Massachusetts State Police said a total of 70 fires, explosions or investigations of gas odor had been reported.
