LOS ANGELES — A massive water main break in Los Angeles sent a geyser of water shooting into the air Tuesday, flooding the area with muddy water and trapping several vehicles.

The break occurred on Sunset Boulevard in Westwood, just north of the University of California, Los Angeles.

At least one athletic field on campus has been flooded, as well as underground parking lots.

The rush of water was so strong, even firefighters had difficulty crossing the area.

Sunset Boulevard has been closed in both directions.
