News Release
Firefighters control blaze - 04/11/18

Lebanon Firefighters were dispatched to a residential structure fire on the 400 block of N Morton.  First arriving units found heavy fire coming from a rear bedrooom.  A transitional attack was performed, with the bulk of the fire being controlled within minutes of the first arriving engine.  A transitional attack is where the fire is attacked from the outside controlling the fire and allowing additional crews to arrive in order to make an interior attack.  The interior attack was able to fully extinguish the remaining fire shortly thereafter.  Fire destroyed one bedroom and smoke badly damaged the rest of the house.  Initial loss estimate is approximately $60,000.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation. 

The first arriving engine was one scene in less than 4 minutes.  3 engines, a heavy rescue, 2 ambulances and 3 staff units responded with a total of 22 firefighters.  Crews remained on scene for approximately 2 hours performing overhaul and securing the structure.  No injuries were reported.

Just a reminder, that smoke detectors are key to early detection of a fire and lead to a significant reduction in the loss of life and property.  Make sure to check your detectors monthly.
