    A mudslide caused Niles Canyon to close late Tuesday and left a couple in an SUV stranded for a while until their rescue.

    The Fremont police department announced the closure of Niles Canyon state Route 84 to close between Fremont and Sunol about 9:30 p.m. It was the second closure this week.

    A man and a woman driving in an SUV drove in flooded waters along the route about 11 p.m. and needed to be rescued from about four feet of water, police said.
