LFD responds to two fires Sunday

Lebanon Fire District personnel responded to two fires on Sunday that burned a pole building and then, later in the day, a recreational vehicle.

At 10:09 a.m., LFD responded to a report of a structure fire at 2391 Porter St.

An LFD ladder truck sprays water on a fire that burned a pole barn on Porter Street Sunday morning.

The first arriving unit arrived to find smoke and flames coming from a 36- by 36-foot pole building. Personnel were able to use a circular saw to gain access into the building, and knock the fire down.

Lebanon Fire District responded with 19 personnel to extinguish the fire. Albany Fire Department and Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District assisted with the numerous medical calls that came in during the fire.

No injuries were reported. Linn County Sheriff’s deputies responded due to “suspicious nature” of fire, according to Sheriff’s Office, and LCSO detectives are investigating.

Then, at 7:20 p.m., LFD was dispatched to an RV fire at 39315 Mountain Man Lane. Initial reports stated that a fifth wheel RV was on fire and everyone was out.

The incident commander arrived on scene to a fully involved fifth wheel trailer with no exposures.

The fire was extinguished in about

20 minutes after the first engine arrived. LFD had 16 personnel respond to the fire. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
