GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Firefighters tried desperately to salvage what they could of a burning home. That home is on Kimberly Drive in Orange Grove. 

The fire, which ignited a little before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, torched the home’s interior. Gulfport firefighters responded to the scene, hoping they could contain the fire before it spread.

We are told one adult and two teens were in the house when the fire started, and the adult was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

It’s too early to say what may have sparked the flames, but a fire scene investigator is inspecting the home now.

Kimberly Drive is just west of Three Rivers Road in Gulfport.
