A close call for Brighton home

A Brighton resident has been advised to have an engineer inspect his property after a small landslide Sunday narrowly missed his house.

The incident happened at 5 p.m. at 6 Olive St., an address on a dead-end street that has a four-story-high cliff at the end, the Boston Fire Department said. The cliff is made of rocks and boulders topped with dirt, with trees on top of that, said Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald.
