Hundreds of people and dozens of animals are stuck with no way out following a mudslide in the Santa Barbara area.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department says its construction section is responding to Rancho Oso RV & Camping Resort on the 3700 block of Paradise Road to help clear the road and escort people out once roads in the area reopen.

About 400 people and 70 horses were impacted.

Photos from the Santa Barbara County Fire Department show the mudslide across the roadway with one vehicle stuck.

There have been no reports of injuries or medical calls to the area.
