Myrtle Beach fire witness accounts

Myrtle Beach fire started yesterday in South Carolina and now forces evacuation. We try in this story to present live witness accounts about what people see and say about Myrtle Beach fire.

According to Wral.com "Police banged on doors to awaken residents as strong winds pushed the blaze through a wooded swath toward the Barefoot Landing development, a sprawling complex of houses, condominiums and golf courses separated from the main route through Myrtle Beach by the Intracoastal Waterway."
