Florida resort collapses after sinkhole opens

LAKE COUNTY, Fla. — Guests at a Florida resort were evacuated after a large sinkhole caused the building to collapse.

The collapse happened early Monday morning in Lake County, Florida just west of Orlando.

Fire rescue officials say everyone got out okay.
