Firefighters: Gulfport garage fire sparked by dogs

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - A rambunctious pack of dogs started a fire at a home in Gulfport Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters rushed to Meadowlark Drive just before 4pm to find a small fire burning in the garage. After putting out the flames, they learned the fire started after the dogs in the garage knocked over a lamp. The lamp hit a gas can, and that sparked a fire. The flames damaged a door and a few items in the garage.

Luckily, the dogs are okay, and so is everybody inside the home.
