What a nice little cleanup this has will be after a 20-inch pipeline ruptured in Atwater Village spewing 50,000 gallons of oil over a half-square mile area.

In some places, the oil was knee-high, affecting several businesses near the line rupture in the 5100 block of West San Fernando Road, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department…

Photos on social media sites showed oil spewing up and out onto nearby equipment and flowing down city streets in the largely industrial area. It was not immediately clear which business owned the oil line.
