A pair of mudslides in the hills of the San Fernando Valley forced at least 16 residents out of their homes Sunday night. 

The first happened at about 9 p.m. in the 11900 block of Lockridge Road in Hollywood Hills, shearing a gas line and causing a leak. It also knocked two homes off their foundations. All nine homes on the road were evacuated. 

A witness said that a refrigerator washed out onto the street. Debris from homes could be seen scattered in the roadway. 

Firefighters assisted those evacuated, including pets, helping to get them to an emergency shelter, according to Nicholas Prange of LAFD. The American Red Cross was available to help the displaced residents.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power was assessing impacted utilities in the area. 

A second mudslide occurred Sunday night. This one was much smaller and damaged one home in the 14900 block of Stonesboro Place in the hills of Sherman Oaks. 

No injuries were reported.
