Approximately 865 residents downtown have been without power since 12:30 p.m. due to a downed power line, according to Baltimore Gas and Electric.

The power went out at  and for about 865 other customers in the area at approximately 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

"We have a wire down that caused customers to lose service," Baltimore Gas and Electric spokeswoman Rachel Lighty said. "We have service operators on site that are working to place the line back up."

Lighty anticipates that customers should have power restored around 4:15 p.m.

She said a feeder locked up when the line went down, which caused the outage to be as large as it was.

"It’s actually a safety measure," Lighty said. "Think about when you blow a fuse in your house and it trips a breaker."

Feeders are the middle men that deliver electricity from sub-stations out to the power lines. Lighty said she didn't know which specific feeder was the cause as there are thousands under operation by BGE.
