MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach Fire Department responded to a resort Monday afternoon for a Hazmat call after something in the pool area caused people to have breathing and skin irritation.

The MBFD responded to the Hazmat call at the Sea Crest Oceanfront Resort, confirmed Jon Evans with the MBFD.

Two juveniles were taken to the hospital to be checked out, and seven others were checked out at the hotel, but not transported for treatment, Evans said.
