All but two construction workers injured in December in an explosion at a high-rise building in Baltimore have been released from hospitals as officials continue to investigate what caused the incident.

Twenty-one workers were taken to area hospitals following an explosion Wednesday, December 23, on the 16th floor of the downtown building, where the offices of Baltimore Gas and Electric Company are located. A total of 23 people were injured, and a window-washing crew was temporarily trapped on dangling scaffolding.

The utility said that a high-rise crane had safely removed the damaged scaffolding and work is underway to repair the building’s damaged roof and windows.
