Seffner families displaced by possible sinkhole

Two families were asked to evacuate their Seffner duplex Tuesday night because of a possible sinkhole, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue said. There is no hole in the ground at 5315 Peach Ave., but the floor was buckling in one home and a wall had one long crack, said Fire Rescue spokesman Ronnie Rivera. The fire department received the call at around 5 p.m. Hillsborough County Code Enforcement took over the case and advised the families to find another location for the night. The American Red Cross was assisting the families, Rivera said. A sinkhole expert is expected to return to the home Wednesday and evaluate the soil to determine if there’s a sinkhole, Rivera said.
There were no injuries.
