Radioactive Leak in the Tip O’Neill Building Basement

17 May

Boston Fire responded to the Tip O’Neill Federal Building at 10 Causeway St today when two Federal Protective Service officers received high radiation readings on their personal dosimeters.

The source of the radiation was determined to be an old meter in a basement storage area. The meter was isolated. No other persons are believed to have been affected.

Edit: BFD is now reporting that the scene was actually on floor 1, not the basement.
