Firefighters responded to a fire on Sunday night on Fantasy Harbour.

More than a dozen Horry and Myrtle Beach fire trucks responded to a Fantasy Harbour commercial building blaze on Sunday night.

Around 11: 30 p.m., Horry County Fire Rescue crews were called to the vacant facility off George Bishop Parkway after a person passing by reported seeing smoke and flames, department spokesman Tony Casey said.

The site is near the old Hard Rock Park, also once known as the Freestyle Music Park. The commercial facility was under renovations and surrounded by a fence.

Roughly 20 fire trucks from Horry and Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue responded to the three-alarm fire. It wasn’t until 3:30 a.m. that crews extinguished the interior blaze.

Casey said the fire remains under investigation, and there were no injuries. At this point, the cause of the blaze is undetermined.

Police blocked off sections of George Bishop Parkway on Monday morning as crews worked the scene. There were no visible flames from the outside of the building an hour after the blaze was reported, but smoke could be seen coming from the building.
