Horry County firefighters battled a house fire early Thursday in the Causey community, which is north of Nichols near the North Carolina state line, and police are searching for a man in connection with a domestic incident at the home before the fire, according to authorities.
Emergency crews were called about 7:40 a.m. Thursday to the home on Sand Plant Road for the blaze.
Firefighters found a single family home that was fully involved with fire, said Justin Gibbins, an assistant chief with Horry County Fire Rescue.
At 7:50 a.m. Thursday, Gibbins said in a tweet that crews have “drop tank ops on fully involved single family wood frame house. Extra engine and medic requested on working fire dispatch.”
