HOLLYWOOD (CNS) - A broken water main caused flooding and a roof collapse 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.

A woman was rescued by firefighters from a nearby two-story residence where the roof collapsed due to water damage from the flooding, NBC 4 reported.

The property was red-tagged by the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety.

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

Representatives from the Department of Transportation and Department of Water and Power have been requested to the scene.

A sinkhole appears to be forming, Prange said.
