Lavista Mobile Home Fire

A Dothan family is safe this morning, but an overnight fire has left them homeless.

The fire began around 10 o’clock Tuesday night at the Lavista Mobile Home Estates on Fairfield Road.

The mobile home owner and her children had gone Christmas shopping. They returned to find their home engulfed in flames.

No one was inside, but the uncle of the victim, who also lives there, dialed 911 and the Dothan Fire Department came immediately.

The Wiregrass Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the family.

The investigation into the cause of the fire continues.
