Fire In Downtown Mobile Destroys Buildings
By Alabama Public Radio
Mobile, AL – Firefighters spent the early morning hours today battling a three-alarm fire broke out that broke out in downtown Mobile.
Fire captain Debbie Bryars says the initial fire broke out at around 1 a-m at a Dauphin Street restaurant and spread to another business. Two buildings were destroyed ... Derry's Olde Tyme Cafe and Monsoon's. The blaze is now under control, and emergency officials are now checking the structural integrity of other nearby buildings.
Commuters through the downtown area should avoid Dauphin Streets and Beinville Square if possible.
