From WJZ CBS Baltimore:
The gas infrastructure in the area dates back to the early 1960s and was last inspected in June and July 2019, Baltimore Gas & Electric said. Prior to Monday's explosion, there had been no gas odors reported in the area.
According to CNN's coverage, the Baltimore Gas & Electric press release issued Aug. 13 claims "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 of the natural gas explosion."
