California firemen are very busy these day with wildfires. Now they also had to deal with a big oil spill in Los Angeles. A pipeline broke and 50,000 gallons of crude oil spilled into a street in Atwater Village. According to the LA Fire Department the 20-inch pipeline was remotely shut off, but the spill was still sizable. The oil ran down the street for 1/2 mile and was knee-high in some areas.
Nobody was hurt, but a customers of nearby Gentleman's club found their cars parked on oil.
