Firefighters are still at the scene Friday morning of a three-alarm fire that broke out at a Windsor Green condo Thursday night in the Carolina Forest area of Horry County.

According to officials on scene, seven people have been transported to the hospital, four of them in critical condition. They also said several people were jumping from the building to escape.

Capt. Mark Nugent with Horry County Fire Rescue confirmed that the building that caught fire did not have a sprinkler system.

HCFR says that three buildings were involved in the fire on all three floors upon their arrival.

They also say that the fire has been knocked down as of 10:30 p.m. and that crews are completing a primary search.

HCFR is also asking any bystanders who lived in the building to report to the playground area near the pool house.

Conway Fire Rescue, Myrtle Beach Fire Department and the Red Cross are assisting Horry County Fire Rescue.

This fire is in the same apartment complex that caught fire in 2013, when 109 condos burnt down.
