When a loud sound alerted a woman to what was happening to her house, she called 911 and found cracking in her walls and pool. Firefighters have been on the scene since Tuesday night.
The home is located at 3305 E. Dorchester Rd. in the Highland Estates subdivision. The living room has sunk about 5 inches overnight. Neighbors have been contacted, but unless the sinking spreads, they won't be forced to leave.
Officials are trying to determine if the sinking is a sinkhole or settling material below the house.
