A fire at Broadway at the Beach has caused damage to the boardwalk.

Wooden planks and part of the railing over Lake Broadway were burned in the fire. The walkway goes along the Dino Park attraction, near Margaritaville.

John Evans, spokesperson for the Myrtle Beach Fire Department, said he didn’t believe anybody was injured or in danger. Evans said that no buildings or structures near the boardwalk sustained damage in the fire.

The call for the fire came in around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and was under control by about 6 p.m., Evans said. At least 15 fire and rescue vehicles responded to the incident.
