A block-long sinkhole opened up in a residential neighborhood in northeast Baltimore, sucking in multiple cars and forcing the evacuation of several houses, officials said.

The fire department tweeted on its official Twitter account that a sinkhole opened up Wednesday afternoon in the first block of 26th Street. The sinkhole opened next to railroad tracks used by CSX.

The block of rowhouses was evacuated, and a building inspector called. The fire department said no injuries had been reported.

CSX suspended rail traffic, according to a fire department tweet. Transportation officials were said to be conducting an analysis of the street.

According to one witness, the site looked like a landslide had occurred.

Rain had drenched central Maryland for more than 24 hours.
