Possible sinkhole causes evacuation of condominiums

- Altamonte Police evacuated some condominiums after an approximately 12-foot-wide, 9-foot-deep sinkhole appeared near the homes Sunday afternoon. 

Police say the sinkhole was spotted at the Oasis at Pearl Lake Condominiums around 4:30 p.m. 

Officials evacuated six units and turned the power off in the affected building until a geotechnical engineer could examine the hole on Monday and provide additional info for the property owner.  Officials say nothing has fallen into the hole and no structural damage is apparent.

Police say it is up to the condo complex owner to fix the sinkhole.  Fire officials continue to monitor the size of the hole.
