Top Stories: A Propane Tank Explodes at Scott Plank’s House, The Ward Estate Hits the Market, Penn Station Robotic Bike Storage Plan Resurfaces


Our top story this week was a doozy: an explosion, hovering media helicopters and dozens of cop cars and firetrucks, all on one of Baltimore’s wealthiest streets.

On Wednesday morning, when developer Scott Plank (Kevin’s brother) wasn’t home, a propane tank exploded behind his house. Authorities responded and transported one person to an area hospital with burn injuries.

Shots from overhead showed a blocked-off road, a hole in a service building and debris on Plank’s personal tennis court. However, as Ed Gunts wrote, it also drew attention to the luxurious neighborhood: “It’s an encouraging sign that homeowners are investing in Baltimore. The aerial shots of Plank’s tennis court and swimming pool looked impressive.”

Here were our other top stories from the last seven days:
