TOWSON, Md. — Authorities in Baltimore County say the air in the circuit court in Towson is safe after a nearby gas main break forced the building to be evacuated.

County public safety officials said in a statement that crews working on Chesapeake Avenue cut a gas main around 10 a.m. Thursday. Officials say Bosley Avenue is closed between Towsontowne Boulevard and Pennsylvania Avenue. The Baltimore County Circuit Court was also evacuated.

Officials said in a news release Thursday afternoon that southbound Bosley Avenue has re-opened.

Officials say there are no reports of injuries and BGE will stay on the scene to finish repair work.
