Burbank Fire and Police units were called to Buena Vista Street across from Disney Studios between Alameda and Riverside Drive for what appeared to be a fire hydrant knocked off, only to find an underground reclaimed water valve that was recently installed broke.

Buena Vista was closed to southbound traffic for close to 30 minutes until the Water Department could shut down the flow. The reclaimed water was reportedly supplying St. Joseph Medical Center and Providence High School.
