Fire has destroyed much of a double wide trailer on South Swan Road in Gulfport. According to District Chief Derek Ladner, the blaze broke out just after 9PM.

It took firefighters about 45 minutes to put out the fire that destroyed the front porch of the home, and much of the living room. No one was home at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.

As crews were battling that blaze, a call came in about another fire at Trinity Yachts in Gulfport. Battalion Chief Lonnie Necaise tells WLOX news units responded to the building where they found fire on the second floor.

Crews had that blaze controlled within an hour of arriving on the scene.

No word on the cause of either fire. An investigation will begin in the morning.
