Baltimore Gas and Electric crews have repaired a gas main break in Severna Park, and are in the process of restoring service to homes that lost gas Thursday morning, a BGE spokeswoman said.

Crews repaired damage to a 2 inch gas main on Whites Road, in the Cattail Creek neighborhood, which appears to have been caused by a contractor striking a gas line, said BGE spokeswoman Linda Foy.

Two customers lost gas this afternoon, and were due to have it restored once BGE workers could access the homes, she said.

Anne Arundel County firefighters were called to the neighborhood around 11:30 a.m., said Lt. Keith Hamilton, spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

Hamilton said firefighters spent the morning and early afternoon evacuating and inspecting homes in the neighborhood to ensure they are safe for residents. "There was no fire, no explosions, no injuries," Hamilton said.
