Crews responded to a large fire that heavily damaged several structures at Ocean Lakes Family Campground early Friday morning, according to Horry County Fire Rescue.

The agency was called to the campground, located at 6001 S. Kings Highway outside Myrtle Beach, for a three-alarm fire at 4:44 a.m. that displaced 45 people.

Ten units were damaged due to the fire, and at least four of them experienced heavy damage, HCFR officials said. Approximately six vehicles and six golf carts were also damaged.

Two firefighters were taken to the hospital, and no other injuries were reported.

Ocean Lakes released a statement that said most of the families staying at the 10 annual lease sites on Neptune Road that were impacted were on vacation. Campsites were not affected.

"Our top priority has been assisting guests that were displaced by the fire with their immediate needs and trying to comfort the families as best we can," the message said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the guests and homeowners during this very difficult time."
