Residents deal with costly expenses after Baltimore steam pipe explosion in June

BALTIMORE, Md. (WBFF) -- There are some frustrated car owners, after that steam pipe explosion in downtown Baltimore.

The blast damaged more than 30 vehicles two months ago and a Baltimore County couple is still worried about who will pay for their repairs.

In Perry Hall, Michelle Muir and her husband are dealing with an explosion expense.

"Everything that has to be done to this car, we have to pay for," said Muir.

Muir said the cost to repair the damage to her 2002 Honda Accord is estimated to be close to more than a thousand dollars.

A blown out back window has been replaced, so the car is drivable. Still, theres so much more to do.

"The sunroof, they said, was over $400. So, it's a total of close to $2,000 for window replacement," said Muir.

Muir said the damage was caused by the pipe explosion that happened in downtown Baltimore in June.

But now, two months later, the Muirs say theyre still waiting for Veolia, the company that owns the steam line, to pay for the damage done to the car.

But now, two months later, the Muirs ares still waiting for Veolia, the company that owns the steamline, to pay for the damage done to the car.

"They say until, again, until they are found at fault, they are not going to pay for anything. And that's frustrating because we weren't at fault," said Muir.

The couple had gone downtown for a baseball game. They showed us pictures of their car covered in dirt and debris, with a dented hood, shattered back window and other broken windows. Its a car casualty situation for the couple when patience is running so low.

"Patience is ok, if we had full coverage on the car, we don't. So, basically, we're paying out of pocket," said Muir.

We reached out to a Veolia spokesperson who tells us, if its determined that Veolia is responsible for the cause of the steam pipe explosion, the company will pay for damages to cars.
