CAROLINA FOREST, SC — Nearly twenty hours of dash cam video from eight different Horry County Police cars detail exactly what happened the first moment officers entered the complex on March 16th.
Just moments after the first officers drove into Windsor Green, their cameras caught both people and animals racing away from the fire, at the same time other people with sheer terror in their voices were rushing to the officers for help. The raw dash-cam video captured the sights and sounds of chaos as the fire spread to consume 26 buildings and 109 housing units.
Three of the first Horry County police officers on scene at Windsor Green said it was during the time of crisis that all they could think about was making sure people were making it out alive.
