A 20-inch pipeline burst in Los Angeles Thursday, spilling more than 50,000 gallons of crude oil across a half-square mile.
Several businesses near the rupture were affected as the oil reached knee-high levels, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.
It is still uncertain which business owned the oil line. No injuries were reported, but a number of vehicles parked a nearby nightclub were affected by the spill.
