At around 4 p.m. on Friday, May 14th, a huge gas explosion shocked a neighborhood in Pikesville. BGE crews were working on a gas line when it exploded. The fire burned for about three hours before crews were able to extinguish it. Witnesses said they could feel the explosion shake their homes and the heat from the resulting fire. Surrounding structures, trees, and power lines were engulfed by the flames. Firefighters evacuated homes nearest to the blaze. BGE stated that “In order to safely perform this work, gas service may be suspended to approximately 200 customers while the repair work is underway. The process of restoring gas service to these customers will begin once repairs are completed.”
The explosion left several people injured, including some BGE employees that were on the scene. One victim was seriously injured and taken for treatment at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
