HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Members of Horry County Fire Rescue came to the aid of a small four-legged friend on Wednesday.

According to a post on HCFR’s Facebook page, investigators were traveling down El Bethel Road in Conway when they came upon a lady appearing to be in need of assistance.

When they stopped, they learned a cat was stuck in a nearby storm drain, according to the post.

Conway officials were sent to the scene to assist as well, and the animal was successfully rescued.

HCFR Battalion Chief John Fowler said the woman who firefighters first encountered is with Whiskers Animal Rescue and Sanctuary out of Loris. 

"She was in the car and actually heard the cat meowing," Fowler said.

Firefighters turned the cat over to the woman after it was rescued from the storm drain, according to Fowler.

    Leaders say Legends Drive needs improvements, but who could pay for it?

    Improvements for Legends Drive, a continuously growing area, has been a topic of discussion for leaders and homeowners over the last several months, but the question is exactly how those improvements are going to be paid for.   Horry County Councilman Johnny Vaught said the area around Legends Drive is constantly bringing new housing developments and if that’s going to continue, the now privately-owned road needs to be fixed.
