Brush fire in Awendaw under control but not fully contained

AWENDAW, S.C. (WCBD) — The U.S. Forest Service is keeping an eye on a brush fire in Awendaw.

Officials say the brush fire is at Halfway Creek Road and Guerin’s Bridge Road.

We’re told about 91 acres have burned. It is currently under control but not fully contained.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission says the fire is possibly a flair-up from a prescribed burn in the area a few days ago.

No structures are threatened at this time.  All roads near and around the area are also open.
