People living in a Niles neighborhood said they are concerned about a sinkhole that opened up on Hyde Avenue.

The sinkhole is about 8-feet deep. Heavy rains are being blamed for the hole.

The city put a street sign over the hole to warn people. Residents put a concrete stone over the hole to prevent people from falling inside.

Officials said because the sinkhole is in the devil strip in front of a duplex, it’s the property owner’s responsibility. City officials said they plan to send a letter ordering the sinkhole be fixed.
