MT. HOLLY, N.J. (CBS) – A sinkhole opened under a home in Mt. Holly, New Jersey causing a basement wall to collapse and leaving residents evacuated.

John Moroney, the homeowner, rents the property to tenants. Moroney tells Eyewitness News, heavy rain Monday evening caused the creek that runs behind the Cherry Street home to flood. The homeowner says the water level raised approximately five feet causing the sinkhole near the base of the structure.

The sinkhole then caused a basement wall to collapse.

The owner says the house is no longer structurally safe.

No injuries were reported.
