Fire at Substation Causes Maryland Power Outage

Several Harford County (MD) residents were without power overnight after a fire broke out at a Baltimore Gas and Electric substation and after some wires were downed due to a hit-and-run, reports WBAL TV.

Bel Air and Jarrettsville volunteer fire company crews said they found a ground transformer on fire. Once Baltimore Gas and Electric secured power to the unit, fire crews were able to put the fire out in about 15 minutes.

No one was injured.  Crews are still trying to figure out what led to the fire.

About 200 county residents were still without power early Wednesday morning. At one point, more than 2,000 customers were in the dark.
