Police rescue 2 after home slides off foundation


Police in Bellevue rescued two people from a home that slid off its foundation Monday morning.

The Seattle Times reports police received a call of flooding around 4 a.m. and officers, along with fire crews, arrived to find a partially collapsed two-story home listing at a 45 degree angle.

Two adults, a man and a woman, and their dog were pulled from the large two-story home. They were unharmed.

Meeghan Black, a Bellevue Police spokesperson, said the home appears to be the only one damaged in the slide.

“This is pretty devastating,” Black said. “We’re very, very fortunate that no one was injured.”
