(CNN) -- A sinkhole swallowed part of a house in Florida on Thursday, the county sheriff's office said.

Deputies responded to the scene in Dunedin to find the hole behind the house had also swallowed a tree and a small boat.

Hundreds of sinkholes form every year in Florida. In August, one gobbled up a condo building in the town of Clermont.
