GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The Gulfport Fire Department made an unusual rescue off Ewing Street on Wednesday evening. When firefighters arrived at the scene, they forced entry into the single story wood home that was filled with smoke.

Once inside, crews spotted a fire over an aquarium. Firefighters were able to get the fish out and move them to a temporary aquarium.

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, but officials believe the flames were sparked by a faulty aquarium pump.

The home received only smoke damage, and no one was hurt.
