Los Angeles neighborhood submerged 'knee high' after broken pipe gushes oil

In an event typically reserved for fragile marine ecosystems, as many as 10,000 gallons of oil spilled on to the streets of a northeastern Los Angeles neighborhood last night after an oil pipeline burst. KNBC-TV reports oil was seen shooting 10 to 15 feet in the sky and nearby businesses were evacuated. The fire department said in a statement the oil was even "knee high" in some areas. The oil line was quickly shut off and no injuries were reported. -- Jordan Valinsky
