TAMPA – A growing sinkhole has swallowed a car and forced 11 families to evacuate a building near the University of South Florida.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue says the sinkhole measures about 20 feet wide and 10 feet deep. Residents called authorities early Sunday when they noticed the hole in the parking lot next to their building.

No injuries were reported.

Fire Rescue Chief Frank Fernandez says the hole continues to grow near the Bordeaux Village Condominiums on 50th Street.
