Lebanon Firefighters Battle Second Blaze in Twenty-four Hours (Photo) - 04/05/24

Lebanon Oregon,

Lebanon firefighters battled their second structure fire in the last twenty-four hours late Friday afternoon April 5, 2024. The dispatch reports of smoke coming from a residence in the 100 block of S. 6th street. When the Battalion Chief arrived, he found a former Lebanon volunteer firefighter using a garden hose containing the fire to its room of origin. The IC radioed a working offensive fire as he finished his 360 walk around. The next arriving unit was a fire medic unit that forced open the door and did a quick sweep ensuring no occupants were trapped. When the first ladder truck arrived, they laid three hundred feet of supply line from a hydrant for additional water. Firefighters quickly went to work making their way to the seat of the fire, while other fire crews cut a hole in the roof to help ventilate the structure and preform a search for occupants. The IC radioed the blaze under control after approximately twenty minutes. Firefighters remained on scene an additional hour overhauling and investigating the blaze. Lebanon Fire Investigation Team (LFIT) was leading the investigation, and no injuries were reported. Unfortunately, the family’s cat didn’t make it out of the structure in time and the family will be displaced due to fire and smoke damage.

Lebanon Fire District responded with 19 personnel on one ladder truck, three engines, two ALS fire medic units, one heavy rescue and one rehab unit for firefighters. Three staff officers also responded.
