Rescue crews continued searching for survivors late Saturday after voices were heard in the debris field of a massive landslide that killed three people in rural Washington state.

Snohomish County Fire District 21 Chief Travis Hots said at a news that people were ``yelling for our help'' and rescuers would work through the night.

Hots said it wasn't clear how many people might still be alive.

The massive landslide of mud, trees and rocks happened Saturday morning.

Several people, including an infant, were critically injured, and at least six houses were destroyed.
