An house on Little River Neck Road in North Myrtle Beach was destroyed by fire Tuesday morning, displacing an entire family, a city official said.

No injuries were reported and the city called in the Red Cross to help find temporary lodging for the two adults and one child that lived there, said Pat Dowling, spokesman for North Myrtle Beach.

“The inside is a total loss,” Dowling said of the cinder block house on 4694 Little River Neck Road.

The structure was very old, and had a tarp on the roof before the fire, Dowling said. It is not yet known how the fire started. The fire was reported shortly after 9 a.m.

The fire temporarily disrupted traffic and drivers were urged to avoid the area.
