    Severe thunderstorms in East County have prompted heavy rain, which caused a mudslide in Ranchita.

    A mudslide and fire in Ranchita has prompted a closure on San Felipe Road, according to CAL Fire.

    San Felipe Road, also known as S-2, is closed between state Routes 79 and 78 near Scissors Crossing because heavy rain in the area caused the mudslide.

    One driver's car became stuck on S-2 road, but no rescue was needed and the person was able to walk away from the vehicle.

    Nearby, a 1-acre fire caused by a lightning strike was extinguished by the rain.

    Officials are urging people to avoid that area.
