Horry County Fire Rescue crews are on scene at a house fire at a home on Garden Drive off Glenns Bay Road, according to Battalion Chief John Fowler.
The fire started in an attached garage unit and smoke spread to the house, Fowler said.
Andrew Lee, the homeowner, told The Sun News at the scene that he heard a loud noise while he was in his living room.
He went outside and discovered that his garage was on fire, Lee said. He attempted to put it out, but ultimately abandoned the effort in order to evacuate his wife, daughter and three grandchildren from the home. He said a neighbor called 911.
Surfside Beach and Myrtle Beach fire departments are assisting. Fowler said he believed everyone inside made it out to safety.
