Rare Southern California rains have triggered mudslides in an area of the Los Angeles-area foothills scorched bare by a wildfire earlier this year.

Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Robert Diaz says a 4-foot-high flow of debris hit a home in the suburb of Glendora before dawn Friday.

Diaz says an earlier debris flow covered a vehicle in the driveway of the residence.

Authorities say mud flowed onto several residential streets, but no closures were announced.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning after a storm dumped hail and heavy rain across the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains from Pasadena to as far east as Claremont.

A 20 percent chance of rain remained Friday morning across Southern California, with skies expected to be partly cloudy moving into the afternoon.

Carol Smith with the National Weather Service says we can expect more showers Saturday.

"And this is to be mainly very light rainfall...just a couple of hundredths with that on Saturday. And then by Sunday morning, that should be clearing out," Smith told KPCC.

Earlier this year, the Colby Fire burned nearly 2,000 acres of brush in the hills above Glendora.
