NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) -

North Myrtle Beach dispatch responded to a two alarm fire at Barefoot Landing around six Saturday evening. 

City spokesperson Pat Dowling said crews contained the fire to just one store, but smoke from the fire did cause some damage to nearby units.

The fire caused around $75,000 in damages to Tango Bay Clothing Company, according to Dowling. There were no reported injuries. As of January 8 the North Myrtle Beach Fire/Rescue Division has determined the fire was unintentional and caused when combustibles located too close to a space heater ignited.

Prior to the fire, the tenant experienced problems with the store's heating system. While waiting for the system to be repaired, the tenant used space heaters to heat the store.

The Fire/Rescue Division reminds people that space heaters should never be left unattended and should be kept at least three feet from combustible materials.
