    A homeowner in the College Area is on edge after a landslide.

    The house is located near the intersection of Mesquite Road and Yerba Santa Drive. Firefighters who responded to the scene on Tuesday morning in turn called out city engineers after they arrived, in order to determine what can or should be done to shore up the hillside, and whether it was safe to continue occupying the home

    The slide carried away what appears to be about 100 linear feet of hillside, which slipped down into the canyon that the home is located next to. Concrete slabs poured for a back patio are now suspended over the hillside without any support.
