Early this morning, Gulfport firefighters responded to Hidden Acres Mobile Home Park where they say a fire started in the living room. However, when they arrived the fire was already out.

Gulfport Fire Chief Mike Beyerstedt says the home’s smoke detectors weren’t functioning and appears the fire was accidental.
