Florida Sinkhole Filled After Threatening Two Homes

Courtesy Casey Messer/Helicon Property Restoration (ORLANDO, Fla.) -- A 50-foot deep sinkhole has been filled after it threatened two homes at a Florida retirement community.

Residents had to be evacuated after the ground opened up Saturday between two houses at The Villages community, north of Orlando.

Workers spent all Saturday night filling the hole with sand and cement to stop it from spreading.

Project manager Rich Kay said this was "by far the most extreme" sinkhole he has seen.

No injuries were reported.
