Horry County To Lift Burn Ban After Costly Blaze

Posted: Updated:

A South Carolina county is lifting a burning ban one week after a wildfire spread by winds gusting to 30 mph reduced more than two dozen condominium buildings near Myrtle Beach to ankle-high rubble.

Horry County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Leslie Yancey tells The Sun News of Myrtle Beach (http://bit.ly/167Wjud ) that the ban is being lifted as of midday Saturday. Residents are encouraged to use caution if burning outdoors.

The ban has been in place since the Windsor Green fire in Carolina Forest a week ago leveled 26 buildings and left 190 people homeless. Firefighters saved dozens of other buildings in the tightly packed complex.
