Baltimore & Vancouver experience underground electrical fires, blackouts

15 Jul

This is a very strange coincidence given what happened in Vancouver yesterday.

BALTIMORE — An underground electrical fire in downtown Baltimore that closed streets and caused power outages has been brought under control.

Fire Department spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright says there were reports of a manhole cover explosion shortly after 5 p.m. Monday in the 300 block of North Charles Street. The fire was brought under control around 3:30 a.m. today.
