— Horry County police and fire officials are investigating two brush fires that occurred Sunday in the Avalon subdivision in Carolina Forest, police Sgt. Robert Kegler said Monday morning.

Horry County fire crews extinguished the two separate brush fires and police considered them suspicious, Kegler said.

Firefighters were called at 9:20 p.m. Sunday to a wooded area behind the basketball courts in Avalon after a security officer spotted the fire, Kegler said. Then, at 11 p.m. Sunday, fire crews were called again for a brush fire in an area behind the swimming pool.
