Authorities say a sinkhole has opened between two homes in Seffner and the houses have been evacuated as a precaution.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Jessica Damico said the hole was estimated at 8 feet across and 10 feet deep. It opened about 7 p.m. Saturday. It was spotted by a little girl who lives in one of the surrounding homes.

The new sinkhole is a mile and a half from the massive sinkhole that swallowed Jeff Bush in his bedroom, killing him about a month ago.

Rescue crews searched for Bush, but had to call the recovery effort off after it was deemed too dangerous to continue.
