California Storms Cause Mudslide With Damaging Effects

CALIFORNIA  --  Storms in California caused a mudslide, which ruptured a gas line, and led to a major fire, and resulted in part of a freeway and other roads being shut down.

The footage seen in the video above was captured from approximately a mile away from the fire in Montecito early Tuesday morning. Officials say the gas line rupture was caused by damaging floods and debris from a storm.

Firefighters had to rescue several people because of the the conditions; it is currently unclear if anyone was hurt.
