HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) — A street in Hollywood has again been shut down after a water main break sent up a geyser of rushing water 30 feet into the air and left a crater in the asphalt.

The break was first seen by a neighbor at about 5 a.m. in the 1900 block of Grace Avenue, in the Hollywood hillsides. The geyser continued, with water shooting up as high as 30 feet into the air, until at least 6 a.m., when it was finally shut off.

The break is the second on the street in six months – the previous one happened at about a block away.

Crews say they will have repairs finished on the street and the 6-inch cast iron water main by the end of the day, and water turned back on.
