MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Myrtle Beach Fire Department crews battled a fire at a restaurant on S. Kings Highway Wednesday afternoon.

The restaurant, Shiver Me Pinchers, at 812 S. Kings Highway, is closed for the season and a notice on its Facebook page says, “We will be relocating in the spring.” Crews were called at about 12:30 p.m.

According to the department, Truck 6 vented the roof, allowing the fire to travel to one area where it was quickly extinguished by crews on the inside. “Great job by all of the C-Shift crews at the fire today for their excellent work at getting this fire under control quickly,” the department posted.

No one was inside at the time of the fire, Lt. Jonathan Evans said. No injuries were reported.

S. Kings highway was temporarily closed while crews worked to extinguish the fire.
