Lebanon firefighters douse trailer fire

Lebanon firefighters made a quick stop on a well-established fire within a 33-foot camp trailer Thursday morning, Jan. 30, while preventing the fire from spreading to an adjacent pole barn.

The call was dispatched 9:07 a.m. as a vehicle fire at 39332 Golden Valley Drive, east of Lebanon. The initial alarm was quickly upgraded to a first alarm which brought resources from four Lebanon fire stations. Units arrived on scene in seven minutes and found the large camp trailer billowing smoke and flames against the wall of the 60- x 40-foot pole barn.

Firefighters quickly established a protective hose line between the shop and the trailer and began to knock down the body of fire within the trailer, which was a total loss.

A preliminary investigation into the cause of the blaze pointed to an electrical failure in the area of the trailer’s refrigerator. There was no other property damage as a result of the fire. Seven apparatus and fourteen personnel responded. A medic unit from the Albany Fire Department provided ambulance coverage during the fire. There were no injuries.
