     Four tenants of a Maple Street apartment complex were displaced by a fire that involved three units late Thursday.

     A firefighter received minor burns during the response, Loris Fire Department Fire Marshal Lt. Robert Rudelitch reported.

     One apartment was heavily damaged in the blaze reported at about 10 p.m., “two apartments received minor damage,” Rudelitch said.

     Horry County Fire Rescue and Tabor City Fire Department also responded to the fire, Rudelitch said, adding that the cause of the fire was not determined.

     American Red Cross volunteers were aiding multiple families as a result of the fire, a news release from the agency said, “providing financial assistance for food, clothing, lodging, other essentials, and comfort kits containing personal hygiene items.”
