Neighbors of Dunedin sinkhole might return home Monday

DUNEDIN — Crews using dump trucks had filled in about 85 percent of a Dunedin sinkhole by Sunday evening, allowing evacuated neighbors to possibly return home Monday afternoon, fire Chief Jeff Parks said.

The sinkhole made national news Thursday when it opened on Robmar Road and swallowed parts of two homes and a boat. The two homes were condemned and demolished, and four other homes were evacuated.

With firefighters on standby, the crews dumped about 85 loads of dirt into the sinkhole Sunday, which — at its largest — had stretched abut 90 feet wide and 56 feet deep.
