NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A storage building caught fire at Surf Golf and Beach Club in North Myrtle Beach Tuesday night, according to North Myrtle Beach Spokesperson Pat Dowling.

The storage building, approximately 20 feet by 30 feet, and its equipment contents were destroyed. There were eight pieces of golf course maintenance equipment in the building when the fire occurred; the fire burned at a fast rate and at extremely high temperatures due to the combustible contents.

The fuel load in the equipment that burned included almost 50 gallons of hydraulic fluid and 20 gallons of gasoline. The building did not have electricity.

Dowling said there was smoke damage to the Surf Club building but no fire damage.

The NMB Fire Department is conducting interviews and gathering an inventory of the equipment that was in the building, according to Dowling.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
