CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Horry County Fire Rescue crews were dispatched to the scene of a structure fire on Dirty Branch Road in Conway at about 1:40 a.m. Tuesday.
A mother and her son were home asleep when the son was alerted by a fire alarm at the home, said HCFR fire investigator Kevin Rainier. The son found a fire in the laundry room, and got himself and his mother out.
Fire crews arrived on the scene to find heavy fire coming from the roof of the carport. The fire damage was contained to the kitchen, laundry room and carport area, Rainier said. Although the home is not a complete loss, significant damage was done to those parts.
There were no injuries to the residents or firefighters, and the fire is still under investigation, Rainier said.
