It is with deep regret we pass on that a Firefighter was tragically killed in the Line of Duty this afternoon in Conway, South Carolina. Horry County Deputy Coroner Tony Hendrick confirmed that the City of Conway Firefighter died in the Line of Duty after an accident occurred at the fire scene. Initial reports are that the incident was involving fire apparatus while members were preparing to operate at a house fire. Companies were initially called to the dwelling fire on Hickory Circle just after 1500 hours along with Horry County Fire Rescue. Conway Police and HCFR crews also responded along with the SC Highway Patrol.
Our condolences to all those affected. More to follow. RIP.
