Sinkhole opens near Seffner home near where man died

SEFFNER — A sinkhole forced the evacuation of a home Saturday less than two miles away from where a man died in a sinkhole three weeks ago, authorities said.

The hole opened in the yard between two homes on Lake Shore Ranch Drive, just south of Lake Hooker, about 7 p.m., according to Hillsborough Fire Rescue. The hole was about eight feet wide and 10 feet deep, and the family living in 1427 Lake Shore Ranch Drive left home Saturday night as a precaution, Fire Rescue said. The other home was not occupied.

Saturday's sinkhole opened about two miles away from where Jeffrey Bush, 37, disappeared into a sinkhole that opened under his bedroom Feb. 28. Bush's former home, 240 Faithway Drive, was demolished, and two adjacent homes were also evacuated.
