The call was dispatched at 9:57 PM. Before 10:00 PM the first fire engine was on the scene. By 10:04 PM, six minutes from the time the call was first dispatched to the Dothan Fire Department, there were four fire engines and a Batallion Chief on the scene of the reported commercial structure fire. Fireman were on the scene, in the building and standing by fire hydrants ready of the fire was a real structure fire. Pretty awesome response times.
