Smoke detector alerts couple of house fire


A Lebanon couple escaped a fire that destroyed their home early Thursday thanks to a smoke detector, according to Lebanon Fire Chief Sam Schneider.

“It’s just evidence that smoke detectors are vital and do work. I can’t stress enough the importance of having those in your home,” Schneider said.

The Lebanon Fire Department responded to a report of a house fire at about 12:16 a.m. Thursday in the 400 block of Sunset Drive. The fire began in the basement of the home, Schneider reported.

“Unfortunately, the house is going to be a total loss,” Schneider said.
