Lebanon Firefighters Make Aggressive Stop on Building Fire (Photo) - 03/28/24

Lebanon, OR

Lebanon Firefighters responded to a structure fire in the 3600 block of S. Santiam Hwy in the early evening hours of Wednesday March 28, 2024. The first due ladder truck arrived to find smoke coming from the attic of a duplex and radioed an offensive fire attack. Firefighters quickly went to work by making searches of the building with firefighters from the medic cutting a hole in the roof for ventilation. A next due engine laid 700 feet of 4” supply line to bring more water to the blaze. What made this fire dangerous for firefighters was its location due to the smoke laying low covering all 4 lanes of the busy HWY 20 while apparatus were working off the highway. The IC requested help from ODOT and Lebanon Police Department to assist with traffic control as additional firefighters arrived and during the operation to keep firefighters safe. The blaze was radioed under control within minutes of fire crews making their attack. Crews were on scene for two and half hours mopping up hotspots, clearing smoke and investigating the cause of the fire. The cause is under investigation by the Lebanon Fire investigation team (LFIT). No injuries were reported but the occupants from both residences have been displaced due to smoke and fire damage.

Lebanon Fire District responded with 19 personnel on one ladder truck, three engines, one heavy rescue, one ALS medic unit, one rehab unit for firefighters and 3 chief officers. Lebanon firefighters were assisted at the scene by ODOT, Lebanon Police Department and PP&L. Albany Fire Department supported Lebanon firefighters by covering additional 911 calls with one engine and one medic unit.

The Lebanon Fire District would like to remind residents of the importance of discarding cigarettes or smoking materials in proper receptacles and having working smoke alarms in place. For assistance with smoke alarms in your home, contact our Fire & Life Safety Division at (541) 451-1901. Be Safe Lebanon.
