Fire at Entek quickly put out

Lebanon Fire District personnel responded Tuesday morning, Nov. 16,  to a fire at Entek manufacturing plant.

On arrival, responders were advised that a blender containing battery separation products had ignited and employees were attempting to put the fire out. Firefighters deployed hose lines and successfully extinguished the fire.

After investigation, it was determined that previous maintenance was done on the blender, and the mixing unit wasn’t restarted causing the product to overheat and ignite.

Twelve units from Lebanon, Albany, and Tangent responded to the fire with 23 personnel.
