MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Fire crews responded to a house fire in 800 block of Fifth Avenue North in Myrtle Beach Friday evening.

Myrtle Beach Fire Chief Thomas Vandemark said the call came in at 6:35 p.m. The fire may have started toward the center of the building, he added. Crews were able to knock it down rather quickly.

Vandemark said firefighters were still on seen around 7:30 p.m., to make sure the fire doesn't rekindle due to the metal roof and gaps that would allow it to spread.
