Default Fully Involved Commercial Building Fire in Lebanon - 1:52 AM on 1/12/12

Lebanon and Center Fire were dispatched to 514 S Coombs St in Lebanon for a large commercial pole barn/structure fire at approximately 1:52 AM. 911 callers advised visible fire and multiple explosions.

Prior to arrival, incoming PD and FD units advised heavy smoke and flames could be seen from a half mile or more away. Upon arrival, FD units found the building be fully involved. In addition, a tanker truck was found to be stored inside the building. Initially, there were reports of possible entrapment as there was a bedroom at the front of the structure, but it was found to be vacant. Due to the fully involved nature of the building, command ordered defensive ops only.

Also, shortly after arrival, a second alarm was sounded, requesting assistance and manpower from Advance Fire and Thorntown Fire, as well as calling in off duty Lebanon and Center Fire personnel.

Per the Lebanon Reporter's twitter feed (https://twitter.com/#!/lebanonreporter):

"Damage at Sun Communications warehouse on Coombs Street estimated at least $3M. Three hydroexcavators were completely destroyed"

"Arson task force, state fire marshal with ATF as back up are investigating cause of fire."

"This picture of the fire at Sun Communications in Lebanon was taken on Pearl Street at 1:30 a.m. this morning. http://yfrog.com/nu7g4gtj"

I have seen the Video packages that were shot from WRTV Channel 6 and Fox 59 that were on the morning news today.This is a total loss and as of 9:30AM .Fox 59 said LFD still had a Ladder still up put out hot spots at the scene.

News story plus video available on the Lebanon Reporter's site: VIDEO: Warehouse fire damage estimated at $3 million minimum Breaking News Lebanon Reporter

FYI - The general manager of Sun Communications is being interviewed in the video. Unfortunately he is quite hard to hear at first due to the wind noise. Around one minute into the video, the audio does get better.
