When firefighters first arrived they evacuated the 50 homes over concerns that the hill could continue to give. Officials were also concerned that a gas line had ruptured and power lines were down.
The gas has been shut off, but crews say it accumulated inside some of the homes. Media, crews, inspectors and damage assessment teams have been told by authorities to stay away from the immediate scene over concerns that gas that has leaked into the area.

Authorities are checking the stability of the hill and making sure electricity has been turned off to all of the lines. There is no estimate when residents can return home.
"This area has a history of slides, so we were certainly aware of that as a potential. I don't think anyone predicted, of course, this slide, or the scale of this slide," said Southern Marin Fire Dist. Chief Chris Tubbs.

The Mayor of Sausalito is a realtor - @joeburnsrealtor knows the homes in this area. But he tells me he can’t tell which home this is- he is looking for distinguishing features in this debris and can’t find any. A mudslide took out two houses- one person was hurt. pic.twitter.com/xNTgnd6dJ2— Amy Hollyfield (@amyhollyfield) February 14, 2019
