Feb 28 (Reuters) - An avalanche engulfed a two-story house in a mountainside neighborhood in Missoula, Montana, on Friday, injuring an 8-year-old child at the home and leaving two elderly people who were with him missing, police said.

The boy was rescued and taken to a nearby hospital shortly after the snow slide occurred at about 4 p.m. local time, but the two adults were believed to remain trapped in the snow, city police Sergeant Travis Welsh said.
