A fire and possible explosion this afternoon at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum prompted a full-scale investigation by local, state, and federal authorities to determine whether the incidents were linked to the deadly Boston Marathon blasts.
This afternoon, Police Commissioner Edward Davis said a preliminary investigation indicated that the JFK incident may not have been an explosion.
The fire broke out shortly before 3 p.m. around the same time as the Marathon blasts several miles away in an HVAC system in a section of the complex opened in 2011 that houses offices, a classroom, and some archival material, said Rachel Flor, a library spokeswoman.
Everyone evacuated the building in Dorchester safely and no injuries were reported, she said.
There was a fire, and its still unclear how it began, Flor told reporters. We did hear something that sounded like an explosion.
Throughout the afternoon, library officials emphasized the blaze appeared to be a mechanical fire.

We are told that the Boston JFK Library fire, which broke out shortly before 3 p.m., was a mechanical failure based fire that didn't have connections to these bombs that went off at 2:50 p.m.
'Twas all just a weird "coinkidink" (??)
Well, there's ONLY ONE WAY to get to the 'bottom' of all this:
(Not that I'm a govt. 'fact-finder' skeptic or anything like that...at all...wouldn't think of it)
When's the last time the JFK library had a fire?
well, at least Carnival ships were safe at sea , for a day anyway.
Mechanical fire? caused by a failed mechnical device overheating, shorting out circuitry, what was it? HVAC usually run fine for a long time if serviced properly,, maybe another victim of seequestration .. or?
Arlene Spector was unavailable for comment.
Never mind that JFK was a fairly conservative democrat.
