A large water main break caused a road to buckle in the Hollywood Hills Monday morning and interrupted service to about 50 customers, authorities said.

The break at 2244 N. Cahuenga Blvd., at Odin Street, was noticed at 3:12 a.m., said the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Margaret Stewart. There was no damage to neighboring structures, she said. Odin Street was shut down.

The gushing water was from a broken 8-inch main, said the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Vonda Paige. The water was turned off in the area, and crews worked to repair the broken pipe. About 50 customers were affected, the LADWP reported. The estimated completion time is 3 p.m.

A second broken 8-inch main left the street soggy in the 4800 block of West Third Street, near Hancock Park, Paige said. No service was affected and the repair should be complete around 1 p.m.
