GRAND TERRACE, Calif. (KTLA) — A family has been forced to leave their home after a 20-foot wide section of hillside gave way under the home’s rear deck Tuesday.

The homeowner, Dr. Arthur Jimenez, told KTLA he was getting ready for work when he heard a big bang.

Jimenez said he checked the entire house, except the patio, and found no damage.

Fire officials showed up at his door a few minutes later and told Jimenez he needed to get out of the house as soon as possible.

Mary Beth McDade has the details.
