Saturday was a busy day for North Myrtle Beach firefighters.

The department responded to 16 calls after 12 pm Saturday, according to a post on the department's Facebook page.

Around 5 pm, firefighters responded to a reported structure fire in Barefoot Landing near Peace Frogs. The post says, crews arrived to find a small fire outside the store that had been extinguished.

Horry County Fire Rescue stepped in to help out and responded to a fire alarm on Ocean Blvd around the same time.

The post says around 6:30 pm firefighters responded a residential structure fire. The home is behind Windy Hill Hardware.

A double wide mobile home was on fire when firefighters arrived on scene. The post says, "initial crews were able to knock down the majority of the fire from the outside to prevent it from spreading to a neighboring home and then worked inside to finish extinguishing the fire and beginning overhaul."

Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue and Calabash Fire assisted with helping cover calls, the Facebook post says.

Beach Patrol and Horry County medic responded to a possible swimmer in distress call near 700 S. Ocean Blvd. Later a family member learned the swimmer had made it out of the water and was safe.

There was a car accident in front of Alligator Adventure and at the same time there was a pole fire in the 3300 Block of North Ocean Blvd.
