Fire damages attic of Gulfport home

GULFPORT — Officials are investigating a fire that damaged an attic Friday afternoon.

No one was inside the single family home at 2509 53rd St. S when the blaze broke out, said Gulfport Fire Chief James Marenkovic.

A neighbor reported the fire about 2:35 p.m., Marenkovic said.

Gulfport, St. Petersburg and South Pasadena firefighters worked for about 25 minutes before getting the fire knocked down. No one was injured.

Fire officials are working to determine the cause, Marenkovic said. They did not have a damage estimate yet.
