BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Two workers were brought to the hospital Friday morning after a steam pipe ruptured at a steam plant on Kneeland Street.

Fire crews responded to the Veolia Energy plant in Boston around 9:45 a.m. after a pipe burst in the basement, according to WBZ-TV.

The Boston Fire Department said on Twitter all firefighters will stay out of the building until the leak is isolated. The gas to the building was shut off from the outside.

The extent of the two workers injuries is unknown at this time. "But at first glance, it would appear that they’re non-life-threatening injuries but with steam it complicates it you can’t always see the injury that you’re dealing with," Deputy Superintendent of Boston EMS Steve McHugh told WBZ-TV.

The steam plant is nine stories tall. No other information is available at the point in the investigation.

There was a fire at the same facility back on October 4, 2021. There were no injuries reported and fire officials have not released the cause of that fire.
