3rd Alarm Fire destroys multiple storage units. (Photo) - 06/06/24

At 7:33pm June 5th Lebanon Fire District was dispatched to the report of a structure fire in the 36000 block of Hwy 34. Initial reports said the there was a storage unit on fire and flames could be seen. The first arriving officer reported heavy smoke coming from the structure with exposures on both sides of the building. The incident commander quickly requested a second alarm for more additional units and personnel to help battle the blaze. The fire was difficult to extinguish due to water supply and the number of units involved. The incident commander upgraded the fire to a third alarm, which brought in more fire apparatus and personnel to help.

 At around 2:00 am Lebanon Fire district was able to release all the outside agencies that assisted with the fire which included, Albany Fire Department, Scio Fire District, Sweet Home Fire District, Brownsville Fire District, Harrisburg Fire District, Halsey-Shedd Fire District, Tangent Fire District, ODOT, and Linn County Sheriffs Office.  The Lebanon crews remained on scene until early this morning and then were relieved by the oncoming shift. 

Excavation equipment was brought in this morning to assist with the overhauling the fire and aiding in the final extinguishment of deeply seated areas. Fire crews remained on scene until late this afternoon fully extinguishing the fire.

Our investigation team spent most of the day on-site determining the cause and origin of the fire. They were assisted by Oregon State Fire Marshall and LCSO.

Lebanon OR,

Lebanon Firefighters responded to a reported structure fire in the 400 block of Tangent Street early Wednesday, June 5, 2024. When the Battalion Chief arrived, he found an approximate 30-foot fifth wheel trailer fully involved with multiple trees as exposures and radioed a defensive fire. The first due engine and fire medic arrived, and crews quickly went to work extinguishing the blaze. An additional engine arrived and supported crews in fighting the fire. Firefighters were quickly able to get the fire under control and extinguished without any other additional resources. South 5th street was temporarily shut down due to fire crews and supply lines blocking the roadway. No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is under investigation. 

Lebanon Firefighters responded with 15 personnel on two engines, 2 fire medics, one rehab unit for firefighters and 3 chief officers. Firefighters were assisted at the scene by Lebanon Police Department and PP&L.
