BALTIMORE - A explosion underground in Northeast Baltimore forced evacuations Thursday afternoon.
The incident happened around 2 p.m. in the 2700 block of Harford Road. Officials say an underground electrical conduit exploded, blowing two manhole covers off the road. One of the covers damaged a street lamp.
The explosion also knocked out several windows in a nearby home.
Nobody was hurt and officials evacuated the area for a short time until they determined what caused the manhole covers to blow off.
