The gas main which feeds NW30 was broken at 2:30 p.m. yesterday by employees of Bond Brothers working on the NW35 project. As a precaution, buildings NW21 and NW30 were evacuated by the Cambridge Fire Department. The workers were installing a storm drain when they broke the main. By 3:04 p.m., occupants were allowed back in to both buildings. During the leak, NW30 lost gas for a brief period of time. The “all clear” was issued around 4 p.m., according to Ruth T. Davis, Communications Manager of MIT’s Department of Facilities.
