REDSTONE – A mudslide Saturday evening near Redstone trapped two people inside a vehicle, according to the Carbondale and Rural Fire Department. They were unhurt.

The slide occurred at about 6:45 p.m. on the north end of Redstone Boulevard. The slide was about 100 feet wide and 3 feet deep, according to the department.

A crew of nine from the fire department helped get the individuals, whose names were not released, from the vehicle.
