Baltimore County investigators sifted through the rubble of an Essex duplex yesterday trying to pinpoint the source of the natural gas leak that caused the house to explode Sunday evening, trapping two firefighters and the homeowner inside as the foundation crumbled. In all, four firefighters, homeowner Cecil W. Himes, a police officer, and two neighbors were injured in the 5:30 p.m. blast that rocked neighboring streets in the Stemmers Run neighborhood and shattered car windows, authorities said.

Republican gubernatorial hopeful Ron George usually keeps quiet about the flashiest part of his biography. But as he fielded a question about film tax credits at a candidates forum last week, George let slip that he had a brief and unglamorous career as a daytime soap opera actor. "I got to die once and come back a couple months later," George told a crowd at the University of Maryland law school. That's not all. The Republican delegate from Anne Arundel County is still a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild, he said, a distinction that over the decades has earned him bit parts in various productions.

IT IS TIME to correct a fundamental flaw in the Baltimore region's Central Light Rail Line that runs from Hunt Valley through downtown and south to Ferndale: Some 40 percent of the line lacks a second set of tracks, which will put a tremendous strain on the line as expanded service begins in December to Baltimore-Washington International Airport and to Penn Station.Without a double set of tracks, northbound and southbound trains must share the single track, forcing delays in both directions and complex scheduling arrangements caused by the space-sharing.

The number of homes and businesses affected by a combination water-main break and leaking gas line in Overlea grew to 1,600 yesterday after officials with Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. discovered that water had gotten into a gas main along Belair Road. The problem prompted the Baltimore County school system to announce the closing today of two area elementary schools - Fullerton and Elmwood. Water was restored to about 210 homes and 13 businesses late Saturday, hours after the dual breaks, which caused several furnace fires on Cardwell Avenue, were discovered.

A water main break yesterday sent muddy water bubbling into the streets of Overlea, while a leaking gas line and two furnace fires prompted residents to scurry from their homes. No one was injured, but at least 210 homes and 13 businesses lost water as authorities shut off the water main for repairs, said a city public works spokesman. The spokesman, Kurt L. Kocher, said water service had been restored about 8:30 p.m. Gas was also shut off in at least 400 homes, according to the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. Officials were searching for the cause of the breaks in the water and gas lines.

Looking to a futuristic transportation alternative, the city is considering seeking up to $200 million in federal and state aid to build an elevated "people-mover" that would traverse downtown, with stops from Camden Station to Canton.Based on an engineering firm's preliminary study, computerized electrical cars would run on both sides of a rail elevated 15 to 20 feet and supported by single poles.While much of the initial spur would trace the waterfront, it would be built about a block from the harbor's edge to avoid obscuring views of the water.
