Fire Creates Traffic Backup

A morning fire caused traffic detours for those coming into Dothan on the Hartford Highway Thursday morning.

Around 7 a.m., firefighters responded to a fire at Out On A Whim just inside the Circle on Hartford Highway. Smoke was coming from the rear of the building and fire was visible inside.

The building is secured with steel doors and burglar bars that made it difficult for firefighters to get inside.

The street was blocked for hours while the fire was extinguished.

Fire investigators are checking the building to try to determine the cause of the blaze.
