Hillside giving way under upscale house in Malibu
Jan. 20, 2018
MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — A muddy hillside is slowly giving way in Malibu, leaving an upscale home uninhabitable.
The lavish three-story home has been red-tagged by Los Angeles County — meaning it is too damaged for people to go inside.
County fire officials say the owners were traveling when the home began giving way this week, and no one has been injured.
There appear to be no other homes directly down the hill from the endangered one.
It's not clear whether the sliding hillside was caused by sprinklers, rain, construction or a combination of those.
