Associated Press Release

SEFFNER, Fla. (AP) -- The homes on either side of the Seffner house where a sinkhole opened under a man's bedroom are being demolished.

Officials say the demolition will take place Wednesday. The homes were condemned April 1, a month after the sinkhole opened under the house next door, killing 37-year-old Jeffrey Bush.

The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/10OWs4J ) reports that engineering consultants determined that repairing the homes would cost more than 50 percent of their value.

On Wednesday morning, heavy equipment and trucks will return to the neighborhood near Tampa to demolish the homes.
