(Reuters) – Dozens of explosions apparently triggered by a natural gas pipeline rupture rocked three communities near Boston on Thursday, injuring at least six people and prompting the evacuation of hundreds, local officials said.Live TV images showed firefighters battling blazes in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, around 25 miles (40 km)north of the Massachusetts capital. The streets were darkened after utility crews cut off electricity and began shutting down gas service to the area to prevent the ignition of further blasts. At least three people, including one firefighter, were hurt in Andover, the town said in a statement. Six people were being treated at Lawrence General Hospital, spokeswoman Jill McDonald Halsey said. It was not immediately clear if any of those being treated at that hospital were from Andover.
