A broken water main is causing flooding on Fountain Avenue in Hollywood Thursday evening.

Firefighters were called at approximately 9:31 p.m. to 6050 Fountain Ave. near Beachwood Drive where they found water from the broken main shooting approximately 30 feet into the air, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange.

As a precaution, several homes in the area are being evacuated, Prange said.

A sinkhole appears to be forming, Prange said.
