Lebanon Fire District's Quick Actions Save Home (Photo) - 04/02/20

Members of the Lebanon Fire District responded early Thursday evening to a reported house fire in the 1200 block of S. Williams Street. Early dispatch reports stated, multiple callers describing a house with lots of dark smoke coming from front. The Incident Commander arrived to find heavy dark smoke coming from the eves and front door of residence. After preforming a walk around of building the IC declared the blaze a working, offensive fire and ordered the first arriving engine to pull an attack line through front door and begin suppression efforts. Due to the location and proximity of the blaze the IC asked for the railroad to be notified and to inform them of their train tracks being blocked by a fire hose stretched from a nearby fire hydrant to supply water to our fire truck. A second chief officer arrived and contacted the resident to confirm everyone was out of the house. The resident also informed the chief officer that the fire may have started from candles left burning on a TV stand. The firefighters were able to quickly get fire under control with no casualties or injury reported.

At this time fire officials do not believe the fire is suspicious in nature. The Lebanon Fire District responded with 31 personnel on 5 Engines, 2 ALS medic units, 1 Ladder Truck, 1 Heavy Rescue and 1 Rehab unit for Firefighters, as well as 3 Chief officers. The District was assisted by 2 patrol officers by Lebanon Police Department.

The Lebanon Fire District would like to remind and caution its community on the dangers of open flame candles and how quickly fire can spread to the contents of your home if candles are placed close to flammable objects. Please remember to have working smoke detectors.
