PER CURIAM: Sun Publishing appeals the denial of its request for attorney fees as the prevailing party in an action brought pursuant to the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”). Sun Publishing maintains the circuit court abused its discretion by failing to enter any findings of fact regarding the denial of its fee request. We agree.
If a person or entity seeking relief prevails in an action brought pursuant to the FOIA, reasonable attorney fees and other costs of litigation may be awarded. The circuit court’s order denying attorney fees in this case states the request was denied “[b]ased upon the facts of this case.” The circuit court included no explanation of what those facts were, notwithstanding Sun Publishing in its application for attorney fees cited Burton v. York County Sheriff’s Department and quoted the portion of Burton that referenced a trial court’s duty to “make specific findings of fact on the record” when determining an award of attorney fees. A failure to enter findings regarding the denial of a request for attorney fees under the FOIA is an abuse of discretion and warrants remand for proper consideration. We therefore remand this matter to the circuit court pursuant to
GOOLSBY, BEATTY, and SHORT, JJ., concur.
 S.C. Code Ann. §§ 30-4-10 to -165 (1991 & Supp. 2004).
 S.C. Code Ann. § 30-4-100(b) (1991); Campbell v.
 358 S.C. 339, 594 S.E.2d 888 (Ct. App. 2004).
 Id. at 357, 594 S.E.2d at 898 (holding the trial court’s failure to enter findings regarding the denial of a request for attorney fees under the FOIA was an abuse of discretion and warranted remand for proper consideration).
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
