SCFC: Brush fire in Florence Co. contained

Horry County, SC - FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Officials with the South Carolina Forestry Commission claim a brush fire reported in Florence County has been contained.

A spokesperson for the SCFC said the fire was reported off of Highway 378 and Tree Haven Road. Forestry workers have since contained the fire, which affected approximately 25 acres of land.

Miscommunication between members of the agency originally led officials to report the fire was burning in an area off of International Drive in Horry County. Officials retracted that information later Wednesday morning.

Forestry officials have not released any further details as to how the fire started.
