Two fishermen rescued in Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport firefighters used the city's new fire boat to rescue two fishermen Monday night.

Around 6:30pm, firefighters responded to a 911 call about an overturned boat about 150 yards from Moses Pier in Gulfport. The fire rescue team pulled the two fishermen from the water.

The men were not injured and it's not known why their small, aluminum boat flipped over.
