MYRLTE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Days after the devastating fire destroyed dozens of condos in the Windsor Green complex in Carolina Forest, WMBF News presented "Rebuild, Recover, Renew," an hour-long special focusing on the Carolina Forest Fire, and helped raise over $2,700 for fire victims.

WMBF News brought complete coverage on the latest on the investigation, shared victim's stories, provided information and resources to help the community recover, and spoke to knowledgeable experts in this time of crisis.

WMBF News will also had a phone bank to raise money live for families displaced by the fire.

After the special aired, WMBF News won the First Place Special Report award in Division II from the annual Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas.

We'd like to extend our gratitude to everyone who called in to donate during the special.
