MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The raging wildfires in Horry County are forcing more people out of their homes as flames encroach upon Carolina Forest.

Fire officials told WMBF News that the entire area of Carolina Bays has been evacuated, and The Farm subdivision is on a voluntary evacuation.

Earlier, officials in North Myrtle Beach say at least 69 homes have been destroyed in North Myrtle Beach as a 15,000 acre wildfire continues to spread throughout northeastern Horry County.

North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley says in addition to the 69 destroyed homes, 29 have also been severely damaged. 45 teddy bears are on the way to comfort the children of families sheltered in the Aquatic and Fitness Center of North Myrtle Beach.   Heather Smith confirms that the children are left with nothing, and are so frightened. 10228981_BG23
