Lebanon Firefighters Respond to 2 Residential Fires and One RV Blaze (Photo) - 01/23/23

Lebanon Firefighters responded to two different house fires and one fully involved motorhome fire in a five-hour period in the early morning hours of Monday. At 0245 Monday morning Lebanon Firefighters were dispatched to a possible house fire in the Tennessee Road area with the residents waking to screaming smoke detectors and a house filled with smoke. Dispatch reports that occupants were evacuating the home. The Battalion Chief arrived to find a ranch style home with no fire showing. The Incident Commander noticed the occupants still in the residence and contacted the homeowner outside the residence. Prior to the Firefighters arriving, the homeowner located the source of the smoke which was coming from a melted plastic filter in the furnace. Firefighters checked the home for any fire and found above average heat temperatures in the furnace motor area with the use of a thermal imagining camera. The homeowner secured the power to the furnace and firefighters cleared the scene after one resident was evaluated for smoke inhalation. 1 ladder truck, 1 engine and an ALS ambulance responded along with 2 staff officers and a heavy rescue.

At 0528 firefighters were dispatched to a motorhome blaze around West A and South 6th streets. The Battalion Chief arrived and found a fully involved motorhome, next to a residence and camp trailer. The IC instructed the first due engine to take a hydrant when approaching the blaze for additional water. Firefighters from the engine and a ladder truck quickly brought the fire under control and began overhauling the RV to completely extinguish the blaze. Firefighters were on the scene for approximately one and half hours. No injuries were reported. Firefighters responded with 1 ladder truck, 1 engine and a staff officer. Firefighters were assisted by Lebanon Police for traffic control.

At 0751 the Lebanon Firefighters were dispatched to another residential structure fire in rural area of Lacomb on Green Mountain Drive. Firefighters from the Lacomb sub-station arrived to find a home with smoke coming from the eves and attic area. The firefighters quickly deployed a hose line and threw a ladder to the gable end of the house to be at the ready to fight the blaze. A Battalion Chief and additional fire crews with engines and water tenders arrived and began investigating to determine where the origin of the smoke in the attic was coming from. Firefighters quickly located the fire in the attic under insulation, near the flue of the family’s woodstove and extinguished the fire. Firefighters were on scene for two hours doing overhaul and to further investigate the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and no injuries were reported.

Lebanon Fire District responded to the Green Mountain blaze with 21 personnel on 1 ladder truck, 4 engines, 2 ALS ambulances, 3 water tenders, 1 heavy rescue and 2 staff vehicles. Lebanon Fire was assisted at the scene by Pacific Power, while Albany Fire Department helped the district by covering additional 911 emergency calls.
