Underground fire reported in downtown Baltimore

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND - Fire officials extinguished an underground fire in an electrical substation in downtown Baltimore.

Fire Department spokesman Kevin Cartwright says the blaze was reported about 9 p.m. October 9 at Eutaw Street and Madison Avenue.

He says there was some charring on a manhole cover, and when firefighters removed it, some fire and smoke were visible.

The fire apparently originated in an electrical substation.

Baltimore County firefighters brought a cardox unit, which uses carbon dioxide to extinguish electrical fires.
