    Commuters on Wednesday will find part of a busy Northridge street blocked off as crews work to find out what caused a 15-feet-deep sinkhole in the road.

    The parking lane of the 9900 block of Reseda Boulevard was blocked off Tuesday night when the fire department was alerted of the hole.

    The lane will remain closed all day Wednesday as a crew from the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation lowers a camera into the pit to find the cause of the hole.

    The sinkhole was initially believed to be caused by sewer problems, but officials said they are now not sure of the case. Workers said they do not anticipate any other lane closures or a long repair time.

    No injuries were reported and no vehicles were damaged.
