Fire damages house on Cascade Drive

The Lebanon Fire District responded to a reported house on fire in the 300 block of Cascade Drive on Thursday evening, April 21.

When the first arriving ladder truck arrived, shortly after 9:05 a.m., responding firefighters reported heavy smoke showing from the front door and out of the eves.

Firefighters quickly went to work and were able to contain the fire to a single unoccupied bedroom. The fire was brought under control and firefighters continued to work, checking the attic area for extension, and conducting searches to make sure all occupants were safely out of the structure.

Though the fire was contained to a single bedroom the occupants will be displaced due to the amount of smoke damage throughout the structure.

No occupants, pets or firefighters were hurt during the event and the fire remains under investigation. The Lebanon firefighters were assisted at the scene by PP&L, Lebanon Police Department and Linn County Sheriff’s office as well as the Albany Fire Department by helping cover the Districts citizens.

Lebanon Fire District is reminding residents of the importance of calling 911 quickly and not to enter a structure that’s on fire to try and extinguish. It only takes seconds for smoke to incapacitate and overcome people. Be safe Lebanon.
