DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Fire Crews rushed to a structure fire in downtown Dothan on Saturday night because they were told over the scanner that smoke was coming from the roof of the home and that there may be a homeless person inside.
When crews arrived at the home on the 600 block of Dusy Street on Saturday night, they took an offensive approach. One crew went to fight the visible flames on the first floor, while another crew did a preliminary search of the home and found no one inside.
The fire appeared to be coming from the left side of what officials are calling a vacant building.
Right before 8 p.m. on Saturday night crews were looking for hot spots, once they finish checking for hot spots they will do another search of the home to see if anyone was inside.
Parts of Dusy Street are currently blocked off by police to give the multiple crews who responded space to work.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Dothan Fire Department.
