    Updated:

    HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. - A massive sinkhole in Sefner caused two homes to be evacuated Friday night.

    The sinkhole is 27-feet deep and 22-feet wide.

    It’s located about a mile and a half from where a sinkhole opened up and swallowed a home in 2013, killing a man.

    Emergency crews have cleared the scene and code enforcement has taken over.

    ABC Action News is reporting that the sinkhole is no longer a threat, and authorities will develop a plan to monitor the depression.

    Authorities told ABC Action News that it will be the responsibility of the homeowners to contact their insurance companies to fill the sinkhole.
