Police rescue 2 after Bellevue home slides off foundation

BELLEVUE — Police in Bellevue rescued two people from a home that slid off its foundation.

The Seattle Times reported police received a call of flooding around 4 a.m. Monday, and officers, along with fire crews, arrived to find a partially collapsed two-story home listing at a 45-degree angle.

Two adults, a man and a woman, and their dog were pulled from the large two-story home. They were unharmed.

Meeghan Black, a Bellevue Police Department spokesperson, said the home appears to be the only one seriously damaged in the slide.

“This is pretty devastating,” Black said. “We’re very, very fortunate that no one was injured.”

About 40 people from 17 homes in the immediate vicinity were evacuated.
