Firefighters say a Dothan apartment complex was saved by a simple new device. The device called the StoveTop FireStop had been installed in every kitchen at Beverley Crossing. When a stove fire started and was put out by the device, apartment managers and firefighters took notice. The StoveTop FireStop works like an automatic fire extinguisher. When flames reach it, a flame retardant powder is released stopping fire in its tracks. The Dothan Fire Department is now installing the devices in some homes.
