Police investigate condo fire as arson

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Police are looking for leads after responding to a fire at the Cedar Creek Condominiums that may have been intentionally set.

That fire was reported from one of the condo buildings on Cedar Street around 2:15 p.m. Monday afternoon. Myrtle Beach Police responded to assist fire crews with traffic control but remained on scene after investigators located the source of the fire.

No suspects have been named at this time. Anyone with information about this suspicious fire is asked to contact authorities as soon as possible.
