MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - A beach house on South Waccamaw Drive caught fire, Monday afternoon.

At 10:20 p.m., the Murrells-Inlet Garden City Fire Department got a call from a security guard who saw flames beginning to rekindle at the beach house.

According to Capt. Howerton, fire officials said structural issues with the burned beach house caused problems with firefights being able to go inside. However, 3 apparatus were used and lots of water.

The captain said the department hopes the water will keep the flames from rekindling overnight.

The scene was cleared at about 11:50 p.m.

South Waccamaw Drive was blocked off near the scene.

Chief Justin Gibbins of Horry County Fire Rescue tweeted that the May Day in Murrells Inlet has been cleared and all firefighters are safe.

A firefighter on the scene said no one was injured.
