Sinkhole nearly swallows cars in suburban garage

BARRINGTON, Ill. --     A sinkhole has opened under the garage of a home in northwest suburban Barrington.

The concrete floor buckled beneath two parked cars on Sunday.

No one was hurt.  The property backs up to a marsh.

Village authorities are warning neighbors that a similar thing could happen on their lots.

A professional, structural engineer will be brought in for inspection.

The cars will remain in the garage until it's determined that they can safely be removed.
