The Los Angeles Fire Department reports a ruptured oil pipe has spilled about 190,000 litres of crude oil onto streets in a suburb of the city.

According to a Fire Department release, the leak from a 50-cms pipe was reported just after midnight local time in Glendale and the oil line was remotely shut off. No injuries were reported.

Police say oil spilled over approximately 800 meters 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.
