Minor landslide at Silver Lake construction site; no injuries, damage

No injuries were reported Friday morning after a small landslide was triggered at a residential construction site in Silver Lake.

The cascade of dirt occurred on a barren, three-home hillside lot in the 1400 block of North Occidental Boulevard at about 8 a.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

None of the multi-story homes was affected by the flow of dirt, which partially came down onto the street below. Six fire engines were sent to the scene.

Aerial television news footage showed construction workers assessing damage to the hillside as a small Bobcat-type excavator worked to dig out the dirt.
