Eastern Henrico sinkhole in woman's yard filled

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - An update now to a story we first brought you last Friday of a deep sinkhole that formed in a woman's yard in eastern Henrico County.

That the sinkhole was filled Monday.  Paulette Simms hired a crew which came out this morning.

Last week, Simms was told the hole was probably due to an old well sitting beneath her property.

Paulette said she and her neighbor agreed to split the cost of the work, which was about $275.
