Natural gas odor in Timonium dissipated without incident, fire department says; cause unknown

A natural gas odor noted in “multiple reports” in Timonium cleared on its own late Monday morning, fire department spokeswoman Elise Armacost said.

Armacost said the county was not able to determine the cause of the odor, but “it dissipated on its own.” No evacuations were ordered and no injuries were reported, she said.

The scene appeared quiet by 12:30 p.m., at which time Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. had only one truck on site.

The Baltimore County Fire Department said Monday morning it was responding to “multiple reports of a natural gas odor” in the area of West Timonium Road and Greenspring Drive in Lutherville-Timonium.

BGE crews responded to reports of a possible gas odor at several locations in the Lutherville-Timonium area, BGE spokeswoman Tasha Jamerson said in an email. BGE inspected eight buildings total and found no evidence of odors or leaks.
