A man has been airlifted to North Carolina after suffering severe burns in an incident that occurred off Duberry Farm Road in the Little River area.

A 25-year-old man was flown by helicopter to an Chapel Hill, N.C., burn center, said spokeswoman Leslie Yancey of Horry County Fire Rescue. A 34-year-old man was also transferred to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center with burns to his lungs as a result of the incident, she said.

Firefighters believe the injury was caused by a yard debris fire, Yancey said, although the incident is under investigation.
