NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A fire is under investigation at a building owned by the City of North Myrtle Beach.  

The warehouse along  Bay Street and 2nd Avenue South is used to perform repairs on city vehicles. The fire happened in a part of the warehouse used to store supplies like toilet paper and pens, according to North Myrtle Beach Fire Chief Garry Spain.

A police officer was on a routine patrol in the area around 10:30 p.m. Thursday when he saw smoke coming from the building, said Spain. When crews arrived they found an active fire in the shipping and storage area.

The storing area where the fire originated is completely burned, according to Spain. A portion of the building’s roof was also penetrated by the fire.

 An Horry County firefighter was hurt while responding to the fire, said Spain, they were transported to the hospital for muscle strain.

Crews worked for around 2 hours to control the fire. 

Even with the fire under control, crews remain at the scene to monitor hotspots. Investigators will work to determine a cause of the fire later Friday morning.

Bay Street, 2nd Avenue South and 1st Avenue South were still closed as of 2 a.m. Friday.

North Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue received aid from Horry County Fire Rescue, Myrtle Beach Fire Department and Calabash Fire Department.
