Two La Habra families returned home Friday after being evacuated when 3,000 gallons of crude oil spewing from a ruptured pipeline Thursday covered their yards and filled a swimming pool with oozing black liquid. A hazardous materials crew, clad in protective gear, worked through the day Friday, using powerful pumps to suck up the oil and contaminated soil into two 5,000 gallon trucks parked in the 1000 block of Citrus Drive.

About 3,000 gallons of crude oil from a ruptured pipeline under a La Habra residential street spewed into the yards of two homes, causing the evacuation of two families and an all-day cleanup Friday by a hazardous materials crew. The families were allowed to return early Friday, a day after neighbors began to smell the fumes and saw oil seeping into the yards and a swimming pool behind one of the homes in the 1100 block of Citrus Drive.
