A busy stretch of East North Avenue will be closed indefinitely after a sinkhole opened up in a sidewalk Monday and forced several people out of their homes in the East Baltimore Midway neighborhood. At least three houses in the 700 block of East North Avenue need to be demolished immediately because their structures have been compromised, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said Tuesday afternoon at a news conference. Only one of the properties was occupied and no one was injured, Scott said, adding that the city will be assisting those displaced.
