Two Fires in Gulfport

The Gulfport Fire Department was kept very busy on the morning of Sunday, February 7 with two fires that had to be extinguished in the early morning hours.

The first fire came at 1:25 a.m. at 5217 18th Ave. S. According to Fire Chief James Marenkovic, the fire started in the attic and was caused by an electrical junction box that controlled the air conditioning unit.

“The occupants were evacuated and there were no injuries,” Marenkovic said.

The fire was extinguished, but there was “lots of structural damage to the interior of the home” according to Marenkovic. “The outside looked fine though,” he added.

The second fire involved a shed underneath a carport at 2907 49th St. S.

“The shed was a complete loss,” Marenkovic said. “And it burned the front of an SUV.”

No injuries were reported and a cause of the fire has yet to be determined. The investigation and report are ongoing.
