LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The Los Angeles Fire Department reports a ruptured oil pipe has spilled about 50,000 U.S. gallons (190,000 litres) of crude oil onto streets in a suburb of the city.

According to a Fire Department release, the leak from a 20-inch (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 half a mile (800 metres) 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.

  1. I totally dig this idea, but . . . who writes the first letters you guys or us? (above says, you guys, however the email I got just said we write them.) What is the subject matter? Can we write about anything? I can imagine this is often a lot cheaper than therapy or medication for some people today. Can we include photographs of our cats? How about recipes for vegan cupcakes? There can be a chance I may have interesting things to write about. What is the statistical probability that the reader will treatment? Wonderful idea! You are all great. Please advise.
