House Fire in Gulfport
A house fire broke out in north Gulfport on East Side Avenue shortly after 9 this evening.
Gulfport Fire Chief Mike Beyerstedt tells News 25 that crews had to force entry into the structure. Neighbors who called in the fire tell News 25 that when he approached the home and put his hand on the door he could feel heat within the home. He also tells us that the man who lived there and his elderly mother were not home at the time.
Gulfport Fire Department has since contained the fire. No one was injured.
