CLERMONT --

A sinkhole opened up beneath a building at a Lake County resort near Disney World on Sunday, causing the building to slowly sink and prompting the evacuation of the hotel.

According to the Lake County Sheriff's Office, the incident at the Summer Bay Resort in Clermont caused structural damage to building #104.  Summer Bay Resort is on U.S. Highway 192 in the Four Corners area of Clermont, just east of U.S. Highway 27, and about 10 miles west of Walt Disney World.

About 30 percent of the three-story structure collapsed around 3 a.m. Monday, Lake County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Tony Cuellar said. The villa had already been evacuated and no injuries were reported.

Cuellar said authorities were also concerned about another section of the villa, which was sinking.

The sinkhole, which is in the middle of the villa, is about 40 to 50 feet in diameter, Cuellar said. He said authorities think it was getting deeper but couldn't tell early Monday if it was growing outward.

The villa houses 24 units and 20 people were staying in it at the time, Cuellar said.  They were evacuated along with 16 people staying in building #105.

Witnesses told The Associated Press they could hear a cracking sound as the villa sank. A large crack was visible at the building's base.

Luis Perez, who was staying at a villa near the sinking one, said he was in his room when the lights went off around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. He said he was on his way to the front desk to report the outage when he saw firefighters and police outside.

"I started walking toward where they were at and you could see the building leaning and you could see a big crack at the base of the building," said Perez, 54, of Berona, N.J.

He called the other vacationers in his group and had them come outside. Eventually, he said, authorities evacuated his villa and a third one as well.

Another guest at the resort, Maggie Ghamry, said the area where she was staying is gone.

"Those two buildings have concaved into one another the archway is gone," Ghamry said. "Our floor is 50 feet underground. The whole side of the building we stayed in is gone, in chunks and pieces."

The Red Cross is at the scene working with the Summer Bay Resort to help the displaced guests.

Great Orlando Vacation Homes is offering to help guests by donating a few nights those who are displaced and may need an accommodations.  Those affected are asked to call (407) 398-9840.
