Relief fund set up for family affected by house fire

A relief fund has been set up for a family affected by a house fire that occurred last week in Galivants Ferry, according to bank officials.

The Robin Williams relief fund was set up last week at Wachovia Bank for Williams, her husband, and two children, said Williams' mother, Gennie Lail.

The family of four was displaced after their home on Dog Bluff Road in Galivants Ferry caught on fire.

Horry County fire rescue crews were called about 11 a.m. July 14 to 691 Dog Bluff Road for a house fire, said spokeswoman Leslie Yancey. Five units were on the scene. The home was vacant at the time.

Yancey said today that the fire was unintentional.
