DOTHAN: 08:42 AM Dothan 911 dispatched a structure fire in the 2600 block of Denton Road. The fire was dispatched as no flames were seen, smoke odor, problem in the light switches.
While the call did not appear to be an active fire, in seconds there could be. The policy of Dothan Fire is to roll resources needed in the event of an actual fire.
The first units arriving instructed all units to "Level 1 staging" which instructs the incoming fire engines to stand by at fire hydrants and prepare to connect to fire hydrant and prepare to fight the fire should the situation warrant.
There was not an actual fire. The primary fire engine handled the call and all other units were returned to service.
