Two people tried to fight a fire at a two-story residence near Casino Row, but fled after suffering from smoke inhalation, Fire Chief Joe Boney said.
The Biloxi Fire Department responded to the fire Tuesday morning near Maple and First streets on The Point.
The neighborhood is just north of Harrah’s Gulf Coast Casino.
Firefighters quenched the fire, but were working to put out hot spots later in the morning, Boney said.
The cause of the fire has not been determined but is under investigation, he said.
