JFK Library official: Fire not related to marathon explosions

By Bill Forry
Apr. 15, 2013

The director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum says that a 3 p.m. fire inside the building's mechanical room was not caused by a device and is apparently not related to the explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line.

Tom Putnam, the director of the JFK Library, said that the incident was confined to a mechanical room near the archive section of the library.

@Butrflynet,
Most major cities seem to have gone to a heightened state of alert, and the White House is "sort of in lock-down mode" according to CNN.

Law enforcement believes these explosions were intentional. Vice President Biden has referred to them as "bombings".

@Walter Hinteler,
That makes me cry too.
Dammit, dammit, dammit.

Take care, Linky, going home.

I'd missed this, had been out erranding and coffeeing with Diane.

Glad there is a thread, thank you butrflynet.

@Butrflynet,
Any word on Joe Nation? He was planning on running the NY Marathon before Sandy; did he take on the Boston Marathon, instead?

I'd not realized before that the marathon is run on a Monday. Irrelevant I guess, just a surprise to me.
