Fire damages home in downtown Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - An investigation is underway into a house fire in Gulfport that broke out around 7:30 Wednesday morning.  The house is near 29th Avenue and 17th Street in the city's central business district.

Fire teams remained on the scene about an hour after the flames and the smoke disappeared.  They know the fire was in the back of the pink house.  But, they're not sure why it ignited.

There is some damage to the single story wood frame home.  But, that's all Gulfport fire investigators are saying right now.
