Gulfport man dies in overnight house fire


A Gulfport man has died in an overnight house fire.  The fire was called in by a neighbor about 4:15 Saturday morning, but when firefighters arrived, the house was totally engulfed in flames.  The house was located on Ben Drive in the Orange Grove area of Gulfport. 

The house was destroyed by the fire, and several cars parked in the yard were also damaged by the flames.  The man’s name has not been released yet, until relatives are notified.  The cause of the fire is under investigation, but neighbors told WLOX News the house has had electrical problems for years.
