Living room sinkhole evacuates Winter Garden homes

Small hole opens in house on Tiverton Boulevard

WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – Three Winter Garden houses were evacuated Saturday night after a sinkhole opened in one of the home's living rooms, fire officials said.

Officials said a home in the 1500 block of Tiverton Boulevard has a small sinkhole that opened up in the living room.

Two neighboring homes were evacuated due to structural damage and cracks to the homes, officials said.

"The house that we're renting had a crack along the sides, so just to error on the safe side of things, they suggested that we spend the night elsewhere if we could, so, you know, taking precautionary measures, and that's what we decided to do," a resident said.

It's not known what caused the hole to form.

No other details were given.
