BGE says it has completed the inspection of their gas and electric equipment serving the 4200 block of Labyrinth Road in Northwest Baltimore, the site of this week's explosion that killed two residents.


BGE says it has found that all of its equipment—gas mains, gas service pipes and gas meters, as well as electric equipment—has been operating safely and was not the cause the natural gas explosion that occurred August 10. 


Investigators are also examining customer-owned gas piping and appliances at the scene.


The investigation into the specific events leading to the explosion will continue by the Baltimore City Fire Department and other local, state, and federal agencies.


All electric service temporarily interrupted during the incident has been restored to customers.

BGE will continue to provide assistance to the ongoing investigation.


Any gas customers who have temporarily relocated, who still need service restored may contact BGE at 1-800-685-0123.
