A burst water main on Los Angeles' Sunset Boulevard has caused flooding at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The main burst on Tuesday afternoon, sending a jet of water high into the air and opening a hole, 10 feet wide, in the street.

Jaime Moore of Los Angeles Fire Department said water was seen as high as 25 to 30 feet in the air.

''The biggest problem we've had was diverting the water and keeping people away from this area," he said.
