CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Three family members were displaced by a fire at a home in Conway early Friday morning, according to Brian Van Aernem with Horry County Fire Rescue.

HCFR crews arrived at the single-family home on Kenworth Circle after midnight Friday to find 20 to 25 percent of the house on fire, Van Aernem said. With the assistance of an engine from the City of Conway, firefighters held the fire to about 30 percent of the house.

The fire was through the roof and in the attic space, and caused heavy smoke damage throughout the home. The Red Cross is assisting the three displaced family members.
