Hollywood Hills Mudslide Knocks Down Tree, Power Lines

HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — A mudslide knocked down a large tree and power lines in the Hollywood Hills on Saturday evening.

The mudslide was reported about 8 p.m. in the 2400 block of Vasanta Way, authorities said.

According to Los Angeles fire officials, the tree and power lines fell within about 15-feet of a house. Residents of three homes were not allowed to return or leave due to the fallen wires.

It’s unclear whether there was any damage.

Streets were closed at Vasanta Way and Temple Hill Drive and at the intersection of Winans and Creston drives.
