The gaping sinkhole that swallowed a man from his Florida home last week could be revealed when demolition crews knock down the remaining walls and begin clearing away the debris.

Crews on Sunday razed more than half the home, managing to salvage some keepsakes for family members who lived there.

The opening of the sinkhole has been covered by the home, but once emergency officials and engineers can see inside it more clearly, they can begin planning how to deal with it. They also need to decide what will happen to the two homes on either side of the now-demolished house.

The sinkhole opened up Thursday night below 37-year-old Jeff Bush, who is presumed dead.
