BALTIMORE (AP) — An underground electrical fire closed several blocks of traffic in downtown Baltimore, the second such incident this year.
A spokesman for Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. say it’s unclear what sparked the fire Sunday evening.
Crews were on the scene Monday at Charles and Lombard streets replacing a 130-section of damaged cable.
The utility expected repairs to continue at least through Monday night.
