Los Angeles City Fire Department crews rescued several people Thursday from a wash under the Laurel Canyon Bridge in Pacoima.
The individuals were on dry land near the rushing water, according to Nicholas Prange with the LAFD.
Firefighters set up a rope system for safety during the operation. Crews helped those people move to a safer location on higher ground, said Prange.
Laurel Canyon Boulevard was temporarily closed from Fox Street to Paxton Street.
No injuries were reported.
