The Los Angeles Fire Department says a ruptured oil pipe near the suburb of Glendale has spilled about 190,000 litres of crude oil onto streets.
According to a Fire Department news release, the leak from a 50-cm pipe was reported at about 12:15 a.m. PT in Atwater Village and the oil line was remotely shut off. No injuries were reported.
Oil spilled almost a kilometre and is knee-high in some areas. Hazardous materials crews are on the scene.
A handful of commercial businesses are affected, including a strip club that was evacuated.
Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott says there's no "visible evidence" that the oil has entered storm drains, which empty into the Los Angeles River. But he says it's possible that oil has seeped under manhole covers.
