Ocala Street will be closed until about 8 p.m. where it meets Mr. Joe White Boulevard and 21st Avenue North while firefighters finish work on the scene of a blaze that burned storage buildings.

Fire destroyed storage buildings on Edge Street this evening, according to Myrtle Beach firefighters.

Firefighters said the building fires began from a brush fire that was ignited nearby. The cause of the brush fire is under investigation.

Around 6:12 p.m. today someone reported that storage buildings were burning and within five minutes, with the buildings fully engulfed in flames, authorities called a second alarm, which means additional resources were needed to battle the blaze.

Authorities are note sure what caused the brush fire, but it is being investigated by Horry County Police and Horry County Fire Rescue fire investigators.

No one was injured in the blaze that was contained to the storage buildings, according to firefighters.
