A water main break closed down a portion of Topanga Canyon Blvd. from Santa Maria Road to Entrado Drive on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at about 1:16 p.m.
The break closed both lanes for an 0.8-mile stretch, according to Fire Captain Fowler of Station 69, who said firefighters took control of traffic as the water reached into the power lines.
Los Angeles County Waterworks District 29 workers were on the scene and finally located the correct valve to shut the water off, according to Captain Fowler.
There were no injuries or vehicle accidents during the two-hour incident. There was, however, heavy water damage to a house on the south side of TCB, according to the Captain, who said firefighters helped the homeowner mop up her property.
