Cause of Lebanon House Fire Is Under Investigation (Photo) - 02/08/18

The cause of a Wednesday night house fire in Lebanon is currently under investigation by the Lebanon Fire Investigation Team. Team members spent Thursday digging through 1-2 foot deep layers of debris searching for clues as to the cause and origin of the blaze at 330 Russell Street in Lebanon.

Firefighters were called to the scene at 8:06 p.m. and arrived to find heavy smoke and fire from the rear of the story and a half home. A neighbor's travel trailer was threatened by the flames and firefighters worked quickly to protect the nearby property while keeping the fire at bay. Crews then entered the structure and performed a search of the residence and the building was discovered to be unoccupied.

The structure sustained heavy damage to the interior as well as a portion of the roof assembly which was consumed by the intense fire. Firefighters worked on scene for nearly three hours to ensure the blaze was out and that no hot spots remained. The property was secured and a member of the fire district remained on scene overnight to watch the scene until investigators could be gathered Thursday morning. There were no injuries to fire personnel. Members of the Brownsville, Sweet Home, and Albany Fire Departments assisted with the incident.

Anyone having information regarding this fire can contact Deputy Fire Marshal Ken Foster at 541-451-1901.

Lebanon Firefighters Rescue Dog, Extinguish House Fire (Photo) - 01/30/18

A mid-day house fire on Lebanon's east side was quickly extinguished by fire crews who also rescued and resuscitated a dog trapped inside the home. Lebanon firefighters were called to a report of smoke coming from a building at 794 E. Oak Street at 11:59 am Tuesday. First arriving units reported heavy smoke pushing from the eaves of a single-story wood framed home and bystanders reported that an elderly female lived there but could not verify her whereabouts.

Firefighters were on scene in just 3 minutes and quickly doused the fire while they searched for potential victims inside the home. During the search crews discovered a small dog which had been overcome by the smoke and heat of the blaze. Firefighters removed the dog to crews on the outside of the home who began resuscitative efforts using a special high flow oxygen mask designed specifically for pets. The masks were donated to the Lebanon Fire District in 2015 by Pamela Goyette and Mark and Tina Kroll. Mark Kroll is a firefighter with the Lebanon Fire District.

The home's occupant was not home at the time of the blaze but arrived shortly after as fire crews were attending to her dog. The dog regained consciousness and appeared to be recovering at which point the homeowner opted to transport the dog to a local veterinarian for evaluation. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation and members of the Lebanon Fire Investigation Team are working to determine a cause and origin of the fire.
Eighteen firefighters and eight apparatus responded to the alarm and crews were on scene for just under two hours. Anyone with information about the fire can contact Deputy Fire Marshal Ken Foster at 541-451-1901.
