CARNEY — 2,075 Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. customers in northern areas of the city were without power several hours last night because of a circuit breaker problem with four feeders, a utility spokesman said.
The outages occurred in sections of zip codes 21202, 21217 and 21218 but affected only those homes and businesses along the feeders, said Karl Neddenien, the spokesman.
Because of the snake-like path of the feeders, some homes and businesses in a neighborhood were without power while others two blocks away were unaffected, Neddenien said. The blackout began at 10: 50 p.m.
