KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The damage caused by a sinkhole that opened up beneath a West Knox County home increased Wednesday when the driveway gave in, but the sinkhole itself has not grown.

The hole opened underneath the corner and driveway of a home located on Polo Club Lane in the Gettysvue neighborhood earlier this month.

Clay Griffin with Rembco Geotechnical Contractors, Inc says while the hole itself has not grown, the driveway finally grew weary and could not hold up any longer.

Rembco provided some emergency repair on the home. An insurance company is working on the problem.
