MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue crews responded to the Patricia Grand hotel Monday afternoon for reports of a possible pool chemical exposure, according to Fire Marshal Bruce Arnel.

Fire Marshall Bruce Arnel says they discovered that the chemical feeder that supports the hot tub malfunctioned, causing an excessive release of pool chemical (sodium hypochlorite or bleach) into the hot tub. 

The patients are being treated and evaluated at this time, Arnel said. A WMBF News photographer at the scene saw at least three people being transported.

The Patricia Grand is located at 2710 N Ocean Blvd.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
