Military Families Forced Out Of Homes

Eleven military families at Fort Bragg are out of their homes after sinkholes forced them from their residences.

Officials say illegally buried construction debris caused the
sinkholes. Fort Bragg spokesman Tom McCollum says another 59
families may have to move.

Picerne Military Housing is the company in charge of building
and maintaining homes at Bragg. It said a subcontractor buried
trees, bits of old homes and parts of appliances on land where new
homes were eventually built.

Christine Hull is chief of Fort Bragg's environmental compliance
office. She said the debris made the ground too unstable to hold a
home's foundation.

The subcontractor -- Palm Beach Grading -- did not immediately
return a call Friday seeking comment.
