Montana Avalanche

Rescuers dig at the scene of an avalanche in Missoula's Rattlesnake Valley on Friday, Feb. 28, 2014. The avalanche roared into a residential neighborhood and destroyed a house, but three people were found alive amid the snow and wreckage, police said. The survivors were an elderly couple and an 8-year-old boy, police Sgt. Travis Welsh said. St. Patrick Hospital spokeswoman says the three remained hospitalized Saturday, a day after the avalanche slid down Mount Jumbo into the northeast Missoula neighborhood. The hospital says 66-year-old Fred Allendorf is in serious condition while his wife, Michel Colville, is in critical condition. An 8-year-old boy whose name hasn't been released is in fair condition.
