A crude oil spill in the Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles, Calif., near Glendale, prompted an evacuation of the Gentlemen’s Club Thursday. Oil spewed into the sky and onto the roof, covering the windows of the business.

It was initially reported that 50,000 gallons of oil flowed after a 20-inch, above-ground, oil pipe broke, but later reports stated it was 10,000 gallons. The pipeline was turned off remotely . . .
