GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Fire and smoke raced through an abandoned home overnight.  More than a dozen Gulfport firemen arrived at 606 Tennessee Street just before midnight.  They saw heavy fire coming from the rear and moving through the attic. 

Fire crews did a quick search of the home and realized nobody was inside.  Within 20 minutes, they had the fire under control.  

A spokesman for the Gulfport Fire Department says the Tennessee Street home is one the city has been trying to get torn down.  He also said a discarded cigarette might have sparked the fire.
