    Three homes in Melrose, Massachusetts, remain unlivable nearly a month after sewage started spewing from the toilets in June, the health inspector says.

    The mayor says cleaners have removed everything that could have absorbed the sewage and sanitized all surfaces in the four Brazil Street homes, but the health inspector says only one of the four homes is safe to live in at this time.

    Residents were offered temporary housing after their toilets backed up, leaving a huge mess and destroying their homes.

    The city is reviewing an engineering report that could shed more light on how this situation happened.
