A broken sprinkler sent 1,000 gallons of water spewing into a one-story commercial building in the City of Commerce Monday morning, a Los Angeles County Fire official said.

The flooding was reported at 5720 Union Pacific Avenue around 12:40 a.m., said Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Ed Pickett.

Firefighters spent 2 1/2 hours vacuuming up and pushing out the water, Pickett said.
