NEWSER) – It looks like a fire that broke out at Boston’s JFK presidential library this afternoon might be a coincidence, not a third attack, reports the Boston Irish Reporter. Library officials say that the fire broke out in the mechanical room of the building’s new wing and that everybody is safe, reports the Washington Post. “Any tie to Boston Marathon explosions is pure speculation,” says a library statement. Boston Police Chief Ed Davis initially said authorities were treating the incident as related to the marathon attacks, but the department later tweeted that reports linking them “could be premature.”

In his press conference, Davis urged Bostonians to stay inside, and asked visitors to return to their hotels. If people do go outside, he asked them not to congregate in large groups. Other developments out of Boston:

  • Cell phone service is spotty, but the big providers say that’s only because of heavy usage, reports Fox News. Various news outlets reported earlier that police asked providers to shut down service to guard against the remote detonation of bombs. Verizon and Sprint say they got no such requests.

  • Flights have resumed at Logan International Airport after the FAA lifted a temporary ground stop, reports USA Today.
  • The NHL has postponed tonight’s Bruins game, reportsAP.

(NEWSER) – The death toll in today’s Boston Marathon bombing has risen to three, and officials are confirming that one of those killed was an 8-year-old boy, CNNreports. Boston-area hospitals have received at least 134 patients, 15 with critical injuries, reports the AP. TheBoston Globe reports on the current state of eight patients at Boston Children’s Hospital: among them, a 9-year-old girl with leg trauma who is currently in the operating room, a 12-year-old with a fractured femur, and a 2-year-old who suffered a head injury. Outside of Tufts Medical Center’s Children’s Wing, a flag flies at half-mast.

Of the 28 patients Brigham and Women’s Hospital has seen, most suffered bone and tissue injuries; a three-year-old was transferred to Boston Children’s Hospital, and the remaining patients range in age from teenage to mid-60s. CNN spoke with a terrorism expert close to the investigation, who reported that doctors are “pulling ball bearings out of people in the emergency room”; in a tweet,CNN writes this suggests the bombs “were designed to propel shrapnel.”
