VIDEO: Fire crews responded to a house fire in the 200-block of Ocean Boulevard West in Holden Beach Thursday evening.
The structure appeared to be fully enveloped in flame by 6:30 p.m. according to witnesses on the scene.
According to Holden Beach Police Department, two people were at home at the time and were able to exit the building without injury.
“All the witnesses that saw it say it happened very quickly,” said Holden Beach Police Chief Jeremy Dixon. “All the accounts were the same. It started at the bottom of the house and spread up quickly. It’s actually been several years since we’ve had a fire like this over here. The fire department did an amazing job. They were on scene quickly. We actually had a response from several other neighboring agencies that came from as far as Winnabow and Sunset Beach and everywhere in between.”
