The wildfire that began yesterday has affected travel somewhat around North Myrtle Beach. However, the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce wants to make it clear that tourism has not been impacted. They do not expect vacationers to be impacted this week by the fire. Golf courses are expected to operate per normal opening on time. There have not been any reports of any major hotels or visitor attractions being disrupted, and the Myrtle Beach International Airport has not been affected in any way and remains open and operating.
Though the Chamber of Commerce says the beach remains open for business, South Carolina Radio Network Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh says conditions could change at any time.
