County firefighters extinguished a fire caused by a ruptured oil pipeline Sunday in the City of Industry, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The blaze, which was initially reported as a grass fire, turned out to be a fire caused by a ruptured 10- to 12-inch oil pipeline at the intersection of Valley Boulevard and Brea Canyon Road, said Dispatch Supervisor Cheryl Sims.

The fire was reported at 5:16 p.m., she said.

The department sent a first-alarm response and a hazmat unit to the scene, Sims said. This included three engines, a foam unit and a water tender.

The firefighters let the spilled oil burn out. The hazmat team then made all required legal notifications and stabilized the situation, according to the department.

The fire was extinguished about an hour after it was reported, the department said. No injuries were reported.
