An explosion at a coal terminal at the CSX Curtis Bay Coal Plant shook the city of Baltimore shortly before midday, at 11:30 am local time (16:30 GMT) on Thursday.
The blast hit a five-storey building in the South Baltimore industrial area sending shockwaves through the city, shattering windows at nearby houses.
“When the explosion went off, I was standing in the kitchen with a cup of coffee and all the glass came by me,” said Resident Denis Bright who lives close to the plant.
No injuries were reported.
SOT, Denis Bright, Resident: “When the explosion went off, I was standing in the kitchen with a cup of coffee and all the glass came by me. I was this far from the window. Last window down, that’s the kitchen upstairs. I thought a bomb went off.”
SOT, Denis Bright, Resident: “And a couple of other people came by and called 911 and it wasn’t long afterwards when all the firetrucks and everybody went around to the coal place. Unfortunately, it happened, but I heard nobody was hurt.”
SOT, Denis Bright, Resident: “That’s my apartment upstairs and if you walk down the alley you can see all the windows here are broken out just like they are here.”
