Fire on Old Ledge Rd. 5/22/2016

On Sunday May 22nd, Lebanon Fire and EMS crews responded within minutes of being toned for a reported mobile home on fire on Old Ledge Rd.

Lebanon tank 5 and Ambulance 2 were the first crews to arrive on scene to find a 10x30 camper fully involved and the fire had extended into the woods, burning less than an acre. The fire also extended to the skirting of a nearby 14X70 mobile home.

Crews quickly got the brush fire under control with the help of mutual aid from Rochester.

During the investigation the small tire caps from the camper were found over 50 yards away.

No one was at the property when the fire began, the owner of the camper had been working on the camper about an hour earlier and had left to get a meter from his home in Somersworth. When the owner returned he found the camper on fire and a few neighbors trying to extinguish the brush fire.  

The camper was a total loss.

Also responding to the scene were Milton, Berwick and South Berwick but were cancelled when first arriving Lebanon units arrived. North Berwick covered the Lebanon Station.

Soon after the crews returned to the station, they were called mutual aid to North Berwick for an 8-acre wild land fire. Lebanon's Engine 2, Squad 1 with the ATV and Car 1 responded with crews to help, while other's covered the Lebanon Station.
