Baltimore County Fire units responded Sunday morning to a two-alarm incident at the Towson Town Center mall involving a motor vehicle crash into a building and a gas line break.

At 11:35 a.m., a vehicle ran into a building under construction in the unit block of E. Joppa Rd., immediately adjacent to Macy's. (The mall is located in the 800 block of Dulaney Valley Rd.) The vehicle struck a high-pressure natural gas line, causing a significant gas leak.

Emergency personnel blocked off a section of York Road. A parking garage was closed temporarily, and access to the mall from the garage was temporarily restricted. 

BGE responded and turned off the gas at about 1 p.m. 

One person -- a woman who was driving the vehicle that crashed -- was transported to Sinai Hospital with serious injuries. The crash is under investigation by Baltimore County Police.

Baltimore County will make water available beginning at 1 p.m. today to Dundalk residents who have lost their water due to a break in a six-inch main.

The water -- provided free of charge by the Department of Health and Human Services and in cooperation with the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management -- will be distributed at the Dundalk Fire Station, 2815 Sollers Point Rd., 21222. Residents should enter the station via the Dunmanway entrance. 

Baltimore City reported the water main break yesterday at 215 St. Helena Ave. About 120 customers are affected and without water. 

The emergency water is provided in bags and will be distributed until further notice.
