      Firefighters battle house fire in Galivants Ferry

      Horry County Fire Rescue is on scene of a structure fire in Galivants Ferry.

      Horry County Fire Rescue Spokeswoman Leslie Yancey says firefighters were called to a two alarm house fire at 2436 Betsy Lane just after 1 p.m. Friday afternoon.

      Firefighters say the closest hydrant was 6,000 feet away from the home, so they had to use a tanker truck to contain the fire.

      No one was injured, but the house is considered a total loss.

      Firefighters from Conway Fire Department were called in for mutual aid.

      There is no word on what caused the fire.
