Ruptured water line causes mudslide in Beverly Crest

A plastic water line ruptured Monday and sent mud sliding into the backyard of a Beverly Crest home.

No one was injured and no structures were damaged in the slide, which was reported about 1:45 p.m., according to Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The mud flowed down a hillside into a property in the 9000 block of Burroughs Road, slightly north of the Beverly Hills city limit, Scott said.

Firefighters responded to divert the water and shut down the flow.

It was unclear if the slope was susceptible to additional sliding.
