A car was swallowed by a large hole that opened up in a driveway at a Palm Harbor home Friday morning. A second vehicle also was teetering at the edge of the hole.
Palm Harbor Fire Rescue responded to the scene in the 400 block of Ulelah Avenue at about 6:50 a.m. The hole is about 10 feet by 10 feet in size, fire officials said in a news release.
Fire officials said the hole is about 10 to 15 away from the residence. The people who live there were evacuated as a precaution and the scene was “taped off and isolated,” the release states.
Fire officials said the Pinellas County Building Department had been called in for an inspection. A county spokesperson said no obvious structural damage was found to the house and the people who live there won’t have to move out.
