An explosion from a transformer at the rear of the Lenox Hotel led to its evacuation. The Boston Fire Department reported that the incident, which occurred just before 1 p.m., triggered a second alarm due to the excessive smoke generated by the explosion.

Firefighters successfully evacuated the building, and it was confirmed that there was no fire within the hotel. The explosion initially caused high levels of Carbon Monoxide in the building, but these levels have since decreased. Efforts are currently underway to ventilate the building.

At this time, it remains unclear if anyone was injured during the explosion. The Boston Police Department also responded to the incident.
