GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) _ Singer Wanda Vaughn of The Emotions was forced to dash out of her home after a torrent of mud crashed down a hill and poured into her kitchen and living room, authorities said.

The mudslide Wednesday may have been caused by a leaking irrigation pipe found at a cemetery up the hill from her house, said city fire Capt. Steve Parrish.

``It's like one of those 'Jurassic Park' things, you know, but it was just mud, and it kept getting higher,'' said Vaughn, whose R&B group is best known for the 1970s songs ``Best of My Love,'' ``I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love'' and ``Don't Ask My Neighbors.''

The singer's daughter, Whitney Vaughn, was trapped in mud that piled 8 to 16 inches high, and she injured a knee while trying to make her way out of the muck, Parrish said.

``It was like quicksand, it was bad,'' she told KNBC-TV.

Vaughn grabbed her awards before leaving her home, including her Grammy. Ironically the home was flooded with mud as the 48th annual Grammy Awards was taking place a few miles away at Los Angeles' downtown Staples Center.

Building inspectors deemed the home dangerous and evacuated Vaughn's family and two neighboring homes, Parrish said.
