GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Fire crews in Georgetown battled a beach house fire on Norris Drive Monday night.

According to Chief Doug Eggiman with Midway Fire Rescue, the fire was in the chimney of a three story beach house at the Inlet Point South in Georgetown County.

Midway Fire received mutual aid from Georgetown and Murrells Inlet Garden City Fire and Rescue, according to Eggiman.

Chief Eggiman says the preliminary investigation of the Norris Drive fire leads them to suspect a possible gas leak in the fire place system.

Eggiman said the fire damaged all three floors of the oceanfront beach house.
