Single family home burns in North Myrtle Beach

Firefighters in North Myrtle Beach put out a fire at a home on 53rd Avenue North Monday morning.

No one was hurt, but the fire did significant damage to the home.

The woman who owns the home says she and her son were next door when her son smelled smoke. When they went outside they saw their home was on fire.

She tells us the investigator says the fire was likely caused by a faulty water heater, but we are waiting for an official cause from the North Myrtle Beach fire department.
