go The collapse at 337 Huntington Ave. did not cause any injuries, said Boston Fire Department spokesperson Steve MacDonald. He said the building was evacuated because there was initial concern that the front of the structure might also be unstable, but said BFD officials no longer believed that to be the case. Vice President of Marketing and Communications Mike Armini said the roof’s cornice — a cement trim that borders the roof and the outer wall of the building — collapsed at about 8:30 a.m. while a roofing company was replacing the roof.
