Power Plant Live! in Baltimore reopens after underground city steam leak forced the evacuation of complex and nearby buildings

Baltimore firefighters briefly evacuated the Power Plant Live! complex and several nearby buildings Saturday night because of a high-pressure steam leak before reopening the area by 8:40 p.m.

Streets around the area were also reopened after the steam leak was brought largely under control, according to Baltimore Fire Department spokesperson Blair Adams. Workers from Baltimore Gas and Electric and Vicinity Energy were continuing to work on the issue and kept the southbound lanes of Market Place closed between Lombard and Pratt streets.

Power Plant Live! announced that it would reopen at 9 p.m. for planned Saturday night Halloween festivities after being forced to close for several hours because of the issue. The entertainment complex said in a post on Twitter at 6:49 p.m. that the issue was with an underground city steam pipe.

Authorities also shut down parts of Baltimore and Lombard streets to traffic as workers responded to the leak in the 100 block of Market Place. The firefighter’s union said that meters did not detect any hazards in the air.
