Saints Apartment Fire Investigation

Dothan Fire Department Investigators are still looking into the cause of the fire.

The building was actually set to be demolished later this summer, so nobody was inside.

It all started around 6 o'clock Sunday night, when the Dothan Fire Department got a call about heavy smoke coming from Saints Apartments.

Firefighters were on the scene within 4 minutes and once the fire was contained, investigators were able to come in and get preliminary information.

"Last night we will be able to document as best we could the exterior, getting pictures from the outside. Because of the amount of water that we put in to the structure in extinguishing the fire, we had someone stay with the fire overnight, " says Battalion Chief, Chris Etheredge.

Investigators say the fire appears to have started in what appears to be a storage room under a stairwell.

No one was injured in the fire.

Investigators are still talking to witnesses but as of now the fire's cause is listed as undetermined.

If you have any information on the fire, you are asked to call Dothan Fire Marshall's office at 615-3500.
