Two fires considered suspicious

Two mobile home fires early Tuesday morning in North Myrtle Beach have been listed as suspicious by authorities.

North Myrtle Beach firefighters responded to the blazes at Creekside Mobile Home Park on East Heron Drive at about 4 a.m. Although the fires were extinguished, the structures – adjacent to each other – were a total loss.

The homes were believed to be vacation rentals so no one was home or injured in the blaze, according to a release by North Myrtle Beach spokesman Patrick Dowling.

The investigation into the fires continues.

Man charged in 2011 stabbing

A man wanted in a March 2011 stabbing was arrested Tuesday in Myrtle Beach.

Brandon Lewis Uhler, 32, is charged with attempted murder.

The charge stems from March 6, 2011 when police were called to a hotel on the 1100 block of South Ocean Boulevard for a stabbing.

Police said there was blood outside the door and a 35-year-old man inside the room was covered in blood, but the assault happened in a different room. In the second room, police found a knocked over dresser, blood and a witness who was visibly upset.

The witness told police she and the victim were inside her hotel room when Uhler arrived, pushed his way into the room and “went crazy” taking a knife from the dresser and attacking the other man, the report said.
