LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Fire Department says a ruptured oil pipe near the suburb of Glendale has spilled about 50,000 gallons of crude oil onto streets.
    
According to a Fire Department news release, the leak from a 20-inch pipe was reported at about 12:15 a.m. in Atwater Village and the oil line was remotely shut off. No injuries were reported.
    
Oil spilled over approximately half a mile 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.
