When the incident commander arrived, he found a fully involved camp trailer near other structures burning with bystanders attempting to extinguish the blaze with a garden hose. Lebanon Police Department arrived quickly to help divert the traffic so fire crews could get to the blaze. When the first due ladder truck arrived, they were quickly able to deploy hose lines and began their attack.

The fire was radioed “under control” in approximately 20 minutes and crews then began the mop-up phase. Lebanon’s fire marshal arrived to investigate due to the nature of the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation with the help of Lebanon police. No injuries were reported.

Firefighters responded with 19 personnel with one ladder truck, two engines, two ALS ambulances, one heavy rescue, one pumper-tender and three chief officers. A rehab unit responded for firefighters with three support personnel. Lebanon police assisted at the scene.
