Suspect Arrested in September Dauphin Street Fire

Oct 28th, 2023

Mobile Fire-Rescue Department arson investigators and police officers with the Central Precinct of Mobile Police Department arrested Jacci Augustine McGill, aka Henry Jackson McGill, Saturday, October 28, 2023, shortly after midnight and charged the suspect with arson second degree in connection with the commercial building fire at 407 Dauphin Street.

On September 14, a quick response and fast action by Mobile-Fire Rescue Department kept a downtown Mobile fire from spreading to a whole block of connected buildings on Dauphin Street.

Dozens of firefighters and support staff coordinated to aggressively extinguish the blaze and protect adjacent businesses, buildings, and other exposures. In about an hour, when the fire was brought under control, only the building façade remained.
