A water main ruptured in Venice Thursday afternoon, leaving a street looking more like one of the nearby canals than a path for cars.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the 400 block of East Linnie Canal Court at about 3:45 p.m. as water began to flood the street.

A Los Angeles Department of Water and Power spokesperson said a 6-inch water main ruptured, and they had to shut off water to 38 customers at about 7:15 p.m.

Service was eventually restored after crews worked through the night.
