LORIS, SC (WMBF) – The historic Allsbrook-Rankin House south of Loris burned to the ground Sunday morning.

The house, built in 1903, is a total loss, Horry County Fire and Rescue officials said. A passer-by noticed the fire and called 911. Loris City, Tabor City, and HCFR firefighters responded at about 2 a.m. Sunday and spent all morning fighting the fire.

No one was inside the house at the time, and there were no injuries. Investigators are working to determine a cause for the fire.

The 8,000-square-foot house is located about five miles south of Loris on the 701 South Highway, and is often rented for weddings. The Horry County Historical Society has more information about the house's history on its website.
