A mudslide triggered by overnight rain trapped several vehicles and forced the closure of a section of Topanga Canyon Boulevard Thursday morning in Topanga near Malibu.

The mudslide was reported around 1:45 a.m. and affected Topanga Canyon Boulevard between Pacific Coast Highway and Grand View Drive, the California Highway Patrol said.

About four to five vehicles were stuck in mud and drivers had to be rescued but no one was injured, according to reports from the scene.

Mud covered the roadway and SigAlert was issued for an indefinite closure that was expected to last through the morning.
