The Fordyce Food Mart, formerly Circle Inn and Jiffy Joe's was completely gutted by fire early Sunday morning. According to Dallas County Sheriff Stan McGahee, the fire was called in by a passing motorist around 2am Sunday.

Firemen stayed at the scene until about 6am putting out the fire, which investigators believe may have started in the kitchen. The business closed at 10pm and no one was in the store at the time of the fire. McGahee said the building is still standing but completely gutted.
