MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- A Myrtle Beach resort is working to reopen one of its three towers after a fire in an electrical room forced guests to move to other rooms or nearby hotels.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports Crown Reef Resort spokeswoman Kathy Casper said guests were evacuated from the 180-room Tower 2. No injuries were reported.

Casper said the other buildings and amenities at Crown Reef are open. She said those with reservations and checking in during the next few days will stay in other rooms at Crown Reef or at other hotels with which Crown Reef has made arrangements.

Thursday’s fire struck just as the resort heads into the July Fourth holiday period. Crown Reef hopes to reopen as early as next week.
