NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – According to a Facebook post from North Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue, A-Battalion responded to 16 incidents after 12:00 pm Saturday.

Around 5 pm, there was a reported structure fire in Barefoot Landing near Peace Frogs, which was quickly extinguished.

There was also a fire alarm on Ocean Boulevard around the same time.

At 6:30 pm, there was a residential structure fire off of 38th Avenue South at a double wide mobile home. Crews worked to prevent the fire from spreading to neighboring homes. That fire was cleared around 8:30 pm.

Because crews were so busy, Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue and Calabash Fire assisted on a call about a distressed swimmer near 700 S.

Then, there was a 2 vehicle accident in front of Alligator Adventure causing traffic delays.

At the same time, there was a pole fire in the 300 Block of North Ocean Boulevard.
