Georgetown launching post-fire ad campaign

GEORGETOWN (AP) — Officials hope a new advertising campaign will help rejuvenate tourism after a fire along Georgetown’s waterfront.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported on Monday that the ads will start appearing online and on radio in February. They won’t mention the Sept. 25 fire but will tell potential travelers about Georgetown’s historic offerings, shopping and dining.

The ads are a result of $21,000 worth of space in cooperative advertising that the state Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department donated to city promoters shortly after the fire.

The waterfront fire destroyed seven buildings and damaged others. State investigators say the fire was not intentionally set but say it’s likely they’ll never know what sparked the blaze.
