Bob Ward from the BF -- reporting live listen.
I didn't count them but that number about right -- three there were three series of explosions.
-- pauses in between.
And there's -- -- -- now through -- from the -- forward.
I ran out here.
Just trying to watch -- and we'll get that good darker from the light on the area.
It's very -- in the area -- and what we're coming home.
-- -- well during got a chopper overhead but didn't help me here now we've heard.
About -- I would really hate.
-- -- -- -- Just gonna lose at home want to know what we're experiencing in watching this right here on -- at 67 Franklin street.
And we're trying to listen as well severest -- while we're trying to listen -- as well and you're -- you have from their classes as many as eight you're saying.
Yeah through Morton now we can see the -- as well.
-- is -- -- helicopter -- ahead at this point.
Again is there a helicopter overhead at this point.
Get stuff that we've helicopter is almost directly above the location would explode and start happening.
I would understand that would be.
That the swat -- was spending in some -- -- -- -- fight through that area.
There's no warning that heroic part of under any good faith -- -- no party they're gonna try to.
Detonate what the big brown but we know that we've heard about ten explosions out here in the area where suspect members through -- -- And they seem to me coming from being -- backyard at that home at 67 Franklin straightened Barack can't tell it there.
We're very comfortable here but it is from back then where does it work before -- Korea problem and what -- back to prove it around it.
Again the suspect completely surrounded and now late word.
That there as many as feet.
Ten normal lasts MR board says he's -- just turned to warm we're seeing flashes of light in addition to the strong winds coming from the vehicles.
-- -- we have seen a couple of bright white flashes.
Not sure those are related upon did say in fact he's been.
Eight to ten explosions but it that he has heard and this all happening in the backyard 67 Franklin street -- the lead suspect was holed up in this quote you see on the right picture here with a narrow but it's hard quantity hidden there.
-- swat team surrounded and city was still alive.
That's done atoms around there was no place for me going and swat team -- off to allow a lot of device to go in and take a look around.
They are very concerned about the fact that there could be explosives there as well so.
Once that robotic device -- -- we understand that potentially that is when we started to hear some of the explosions.
That's right and have Bob -- and we heard some eight to ten minute explosions in that area possibly coming.
From the backyard where that suspect is.
Holed up in the book that you see right there it is nightfall right now and it's amazing how this story has changed in a matter of seconds mark.
Certainly the -- this was up all day presence.
The police in Watertown all night.
They've been there from the time that the car chase ended up in Watertown and then of course we have issued on a firefight last night.
When police resulting in suspect number one its demise as it turned out as he was gunned down.
But then we also had.
The foot chase that ensued before this individual here and appears in this to be suspect number two -- throughout the day.
Watertown was a lockdown as were all the communities around as was the city blocks.
-- night that we're listening to WFXT fox for Boston and its live coverage of developing.
Story in Watertown it's our belief that the suspect in there in the in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Was underneath it his boat is far and now there are reports of all of these explosions.
And the explosions though they're being reported as a local reporter.
As a series of explosions it's possible that when they sent this robot in to do -- exploration of the area take a look at videos of the risks.
They could have set off a flash bang in there if you remember when all of if you remember the shooting that happened in California when the man was going.
He was shooting a bunch of cops out there and authorities set off flash bangs inside the building.
To try and rescue the hostages those flash bags ended up setting the house on fire remember.
It's possible that that's the same thing that's going on now it's possible that their that this is -- an escalation.
But just part of the ongoing process we have nothing to indicate any further people have been injured there at least not at this moment.
So that we don't get ahead of us in our reporting what we do know is authorities believe that the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing is now surrounded.
In the back -- of a street on Franklin street in Watertown.
Authorities have come from Boston and did immediately from our position in downtown Boston we watch them heading in that direction.
We believe that there are somewhere around hundreds of officers on scene and -- the second suspect is surrounded what.
